ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos and 9NEWS on Tuesday announced that Verne Lundquist (at Sea., 8/17; vs. Ari., 8/29) and Kevin Burkhardt (at S.F., 8/8) will serve as the play-by-play voices for three of Denver’s preseason games with former safety John Lynch providing analysis.
       

KUSA-TV anchor/reporter Rod Mackey will join the broadcast team from the sidelines for those three contests (Denver’s game against St. Louis on Aug. 24 will be televised nationally by CBS).

Lynch, who made the Pro Bowl during each of his four years (2004-07) playing for the Broncos, will enter his sixth season as an analyst for FOX NFL broadcasts. He also has experience working as a commentator for Tampa Bay’s preseason games.
       

In addition to his work as an anchor/reporter for KUSA since 2000, Mackey has worked as a preseason sideline reporter with 9News Broncos broadcasts as well KUSA-TV/850 KOA Radio simulcasts during the last two years.
       

The 2013 season will mark the third consecutive year 9NEWS will serve as the Broncos’ official television partner and preseason network.
