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.

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.
