radio play-by-play.

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders, who are moving to Las Vegas in 2020, are also moving on from their radio voice of the past 21 years, as the team said Thursday that Greg Papa would not return this season.

Brent Musburger, a broadcasting veteran who has worked for ESPN, is in line to replace Papa on the team's broadcast as the play-by-play announcer, a source confirmed to ESPN. The Las Vegas Review-Journal first reported Musburger as replacing Papa.

Musburger, 79, is already in Las Vegas with his fledgling Vegas Sports & Information Network channel, a sports-betting platform, on SiriusXM. He is one of the more leading figures in sports broadcasting history with 27 years at ESPN and ABC and 17 years with CBS and has called games in both the NFL and college football, as well as college basketball (his final college hoops broadcast was, ironically enough, UNLV's national title win over Duke in 1990) before retiring from ESPN and ABC in 2017 and going to Las Vegas with VSiN.


We’ll have to send Brent an ESSO Cap & a pic of The HiLL
