The radio network broadcast team has been announced


IHeartMedia’s Steelers Radio Network in Pittsburgh announced Tuesday morning changes to its broadcast team’s lineup.

As part of the changes, Craig Wolfley, a former Steelers offensive lineman who served as a secondary analyst while broadcasting the Steelers game since 2002, will join announcer Bill Hillgrove in the broadcast booth as as a color analyst. Wolfley steps in after Tunch Ilkin, who has held the role for the past 23 seasons, retired earlier this year.

“It is an incredible honor to know the people who have come before me in this role and a lineage that I hope to do justice to,” said Wolfley. “I look forward to working with an amazing team on Steelers shows.”

Additionally, Max Starks, also a former Steelers offensive lineman who won two Super Bowls with the team, will join Missi Matthews for side reporting during the Steelers Game Broadcast. Starks was recently a secondary reporter for Westwood One on their NFL coverage. Starks will also contribute to the programming produced by the Steelers throughout the season.

“I am honored to be back on the Steelers sideline once again,” said Starks. “I traded in my headset for headphones, and I’m delighted to join the Steelers Radio Network and keep the tradition of linemen alive on broadcasts!”

Additionally, Starks will join Wolfley as co-host of “In The Locker Room, Presented By Neighborhood Ford Store,” a seasonal daily radio show airing in Pittsburgh locally on ESPN 970 and nationally on Steelers Nation Radio. (SNR), the Steelers’ official 24-hour digital audio station on iHeartRadio, between 10 a.m. and noon ET, Monday through Friday.

The entire broadcast team will also be contributing to “The Point After, Presented By Parx Casino”, a weekly show that will air the evening after the Steelers games on WDVE-FM and SNR.
