Youngstown native and former Michigan standout Ed Muransky will join the Penguin Sports Radio football broadcast team as color analyst for the 2010 season.

Muransky, who graduated from Cardinal Mooney High School and was a member of the Oakland Raiders team that won Super Bowl XVIII in January 1984, joins veteran play-by-play voice Bob Hannon and sideline reporter Dave Sess on the YSU football broadcasts, which are part of ClearChannel Youngstown on NewsRadio 570 WKBN.

“Ed is a quality individual and is very well respected in the Mahoning Valley community,” said YSU associate athletic director Rick Love. “His vast knowledge of the game and his personality will give us a very strong broadcast team as we embark on the first year of the Coach Eric Wolford era.”

Muransky is chairman of the board and founder of the Muransky Companies, and founder, chairman, CEO and majority owner of the Surgical Hospital at Southwoods in Boardman.

He serves as Founder, chairman and CEO of Chestnut Land Company, the holding company for Auntie Anne’s Soft Pretzel franchises operating throughout the United States.

Muransky was a three-year starter as an offensive lineman at Michigan. As a senior in 1981, he was a consensus All-American and earned Academic All-America recognition. He was an All-American selection in 1980 as a junior. Michigan won the 1981 Rose Bowl with him starting as an offensive tackle.

“I am very excited to join Bob and Dave as the YSU football program begins to get back to the championship level under Coach Wolford,” Muransky said.

He lives in Poland with his wife Christine. They have three children: Eddie, a graduate of the University of Michigan law school, Deloran, a graduate of Washington (Mo.) University, and Donielle, a junior at Washington (Mo.) University.

YSU also announced on Tuesday that former Penguin quarterback Jeff Ryan will be the color analyst for the MyYTV broadcasts, joining Chad Krispinsky.

Ryan will also serve as an occasional sideline reporter on football broadcasts and will join the Fifth Quarter Postgame Show on WKBN.

Hannon returns for his 20th season while Sess in his eight season.

So what he made his choice to play at Michigan, obviously he was a far better recruit at the time to play there instead of Youngstown State. He has done a lot for our community and I am happy to have him on board.

I love the negativity some have here, it will never end!

Ed Muransky is one of the nicest men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. This guy would give you the shirt off his back. Congratulations to Mr. Muransky. All you OSU morons and your Michigan sucks comments need to go back to your shanties. Has 0 to do with him becoming a YSU broadcaster.
