Former NFLer Jake Delhomme will be the Panthers' "primary radio analyst" this season, with "plans to broadcast all eight" regular-season home games this season, according to Scott Fowler of the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER. Delhomme will also "work the road games in New Orleans and Houston." Meanwhile, former NFLer Jordan Gross will be the Panthers' "game analyst for the remaining six games." He and Delhomme will "work alongside" longtime Panthers radio play-by-play voice Mick Mixon. Longtime team radio analyst Eugene Robinson will "still contribute to the team's pregame and postgame shows." Jim Szoke also "returns for his 25th straight year as a color commentator in the radio booth." Delhomme said that he hopes broadcasting will be a "natural fit" for him. He said he "called some high school games when I got cut from the Saints" in '97, before being "brought back on the practice squad." Delhomme said his broadcast style is "going to be me." He said, "Sometimes, I think less is more. I don't want to have diarrhea of the mouth, I'll be very honest with you. You call the game as you see it" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 8/15).
