IOWA CITY - The University of Iowa Athletic Department and Learfield Sports are pleased to announce that Ed Podolak will be back in the broadcast booth on Saturday, Sept. 5th, when the Iowa Hawkeyes open the 2009 football season against Northern Iowa in Kinnick Stadium.

Podolak announced, in early January, he was retiring from his Hawkeye radio duties. Podolak recently met with Iowa Athletics Director Gary Barta and brought him up-to-date on his personal development. He also expressed an interest in returning to the booth. Barta and Podolak agreed that his return to the booth is something that pleases all Hawkeye fans.

Barta had the following comment concerning Podolak’s return.

“It’s great to know Ed will be back in the booth for another Hawkeye football season. He has the football knowledge, he knows Iowa’s history, and wears Hawkeye pride on his sleeve better than anyone I’ve met. I’m very proud of Ed, and can’t wait to hear him calling the games this fall.”
