The Ravens will welcome two familiar faces to their 2020 broadcast team with Dennis Pitta and Femi Ayanbadejo joining the crew as color commentators this season on 98 Rock, WBAL NewsRadio 1090/FM 101.5, the team announced Wednesday.
The duo will team up with play-by-play announcer Gerry Sandusky who returns for his 14th year as the voice of the Ravens this season. They will replace former Ravens linebacker Jarrett Johnson who held the position in 2019.
Dennis Pitta, who previously served as an analyst during the 2018 season, spent all six seasons of his career in Baltimore. He amassed 224 receptions for 2,098 yards and 13 touchdowns and holds the Ravens’ single-season record for most receptions by a tight end. He also helped Baltimore win Super Bowl XLVII.
Ayanbadejo played three of his nine seasons in the league with Baltimore. He was a member of both the special teams and offensive units, helping the Ravens establish the league’s fifth-best rushing attack during their 2000 Super Bowl campaign. In 123 career attempts, he rushed for 413 yards and five touchdowns and also recorded 130 receptions for 885 yards and three touchdowns. He served stints with the Vikings, Dolphins and Cardinals as well.
The two Super Bowl champions provide color commentary and analysis during the Ravens’ 2020 games.
