NFL Network's Paul Burmeister pairs with former Chiefs All-Pro QB Trent Green on the Chiefs Television Network for the second year in 2013 for the Chiefs preseason television broadcasts on KCTV5 that will be seen in 12 different markets in a six-state region. Aired by KCTV5 in Kansas City, all preseason games will be available in high definition.
Burmeister will handle play-by-play with Green serving as the color commentator.
"We are extremely excited to have Paul Burmeister and Trent Green leading the on-air broadcast again for the 2013 preseason on the Chiefs Television Network," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. "Both Paul and Trent have ties to the region and provide a great combination of local Chiefs knowledge and National Football League perspective."
KCTV5 will carry Chiefs preseason contests for the 11th consecutive year.
Burmeister played quarterback at the University of Iowa (1989-93) and was a team captain for the Hawkeyes his senior season. He is currently in his eighth season as a studio host and reporter with NFL Network. He has called preseason games for the Jacksonville Jaguars for the past four seasons.
In 2010, Burmeister served as a lead play-by-play voice for NFL Network's debut season broadcasting Arena Football League games, calling 11 matchups - including Arena Bowl XXIII - alongside Kurt Warner. Burmeister also anchors NFL Network's exclusive coverage of the Under Armour Senior Bowl and contributes to coverage of the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
Green concluded his 16-year NFL playing career in 2008 and launched his broadcasting career with FOX Sports in 2009. In six seasons with Kansas City (2001-06), Green established franchise career records for passer rating (87.3), completion percentage (61.9) and 300-yard games (24). A two-time winner of the Derrick Thomas Award as Kansas City's MVP (2003-04), Green threw for 21,459 yards and 118 TDs in a Chiefs uniform, numbers topped only by Hall of Fame QB Len Dawson.
65 Toss Power Trap Productions, the production arm of the Chiefs organization, will begin its second season in live game production starting with the 2012 preseason. Each game will be fully created and designed in-house by the team's staff of producers and directors.
