Dan Hoard has been named as the Cincinnati Bengals new radio play-by-play announcer, replacing Brad Johansen, who had held the position for the 11 years. Hoard is known among area fans for calling University of Cincinnati sports, which he will continue to do when it doesn’t conflict with Bengals work. He joins color commentator Dave Lapham, a 26-year veteran in the Bengals booth.

According to AllAccess.com, “The move is part of the Bengals’ revamp of their radio situation, including taking sales and operations in-house; the club has yet to announce its radio flagship for the coming season.”
