[Kansas City.com] Len Dawson never tried to separate his broadcast career from his playing career.
And no one asked him too, either.
Dawson went to work as a sports anchor while still completing his career as quarterback of the Chiefs, and Friday night in Canton, Ohio, he’ll receive the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, 25 years after he was inducted into the shrine as a player.
Dawson, 77, will join Frank Gifford and Dan Dierdorf as the only members of the Hall of Fame as players and as recipients of the Rozelle Award, which recognizes “longtime exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football.”
