WILSON, JOHNSON ADDED TO RADIO TEAM

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Crimson Tide Sports Marketing announced a reshuffling of the Alabama Football Radio Team, moving Chris Stewart from sideline reporter to broadcast host, and adding former Crimson Tide players John Parker Wilson and Rashad Johnson to the team.

Wilson, who was a three-year starter at quarterback for the Crimson Tide from 2006-08, will replace Phil Savage as the color analyst. Wilson spent five seasons in the NFL with the Falcons, Jaguars and Steelers and attended Hoover High School in the early 2000’s.

Johnson will serve as the sideline reporter after an eight-year stint in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans. He first joined the Crimson Tide as a walk-on running back but evolved into an All-American defensive back.

“We are excited to add John Parker Wilson and Rashad Johnson to our broadcast team, which allows us to promote Chris Stewart to broadcast host,” Crimson Tide Sports Marketing vice president and general manager Jim Carabin said. “The addition of Wilson and Johnson will bring a lot of energy to the broadcast, while their knowledge of the game, and Alabama football in particular, will provide great insight for our listeners.”

The broadcast team of Eli Gold, Stewart, Wilson and Johnson will debut when Alabama opens its season against Louisville at the Camping World Kickoff Game in Orlando, Fla.
