Washington owner Dan Snyder’s ownership of the radio station that broadcasts his team’s games has sometimes raised eyebrows. Most notably, when Chris Cooley speculated on the air that then-G.M. Scot McCloughan’s drinking was affecting his job performance.
Now Snyder is getting out of the radio business.
Snyder announced today that he sold The Team 980 to Urban One. Snyder had previously sold smaller stations he owns Benardrick McKinney Jersey and now does not own any radio stations.
The Team 980 will continue to broadcast Washington’s games, so the team and the radio station will remain business partners. But according to Liz Clarke of the Washington Post, Snyder wasn’t turning a profit in the radio business, so he wanted to get out and focus his time on his team.
He has a voice and strong beliefs and a lot to talk about, said Kelly FitzGerald, a music producer and former William and Mary football player.
FitzGerald聽collaborated with Foster and former Houston Texas teammate Jonathan Grimes on the Flamingo and Koval album, named for the Las Vegas cross streets where Tupac Shakur was shot to death in 1996.
Could it really be that Arian Foster, the artist formerly known as the NFL’s best running back, has a secret new career as a rap musician?

In a word, yes. It’s a real聽career too, not just the type of clumsily produced musical foray that athletes do when they’re bored. After retiring from the NFL in October 2016, Foster threw himself headlong into music, working towards an album titled Flamingo and Koval,聽that was released two weeks ago.

It’s been my life since I quit football, Foster told USA TODAY Sports in a telephone interview. Everything has been about this (new) career.
Now, in saying it’s a secret career, it kind of is and it kind of isn’t. Foster wants聽to be taken seriously so he is performing under the pseudonym Bobby Feeno. But if listeners find out that the man behind the music is the same guy who torched NFL defenses for 54 rushing touchdowns and 6,527 yards over eight seasons? Well, that’s fine too.

The hope is that people will be listening and enjoy just because of what it is, Foster said. Initially, of course I will get that stereotype of being an athlete. I don’t think you combat against it.
