Podolak to return to Hawkeye radio

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The University of Iowa announced Wednesday afternoon that Ed Podolak will return to Hawkeye radio in the fall.

Podolak announced his retirement and his intentions to seek treatment in January after questionable pictures surfaced of him at a bar in Tampa during the Hawkeyes' trip to the Outback Bowl.

The UI Athletic Department says Podolak recently met with Athletics Director Gary Barta where he expressed an interest in returning to radio.

"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," Barta said in a news release.

Podolak will be back in the booth on Saturday, Sept. 6, when the Hawkeyes open against the University of Northern Iowa at Kinnick Stadium.
