Normally, passengers arriving at Denver International Airport are welcomed by mayor Michael Hancock’s voice, wishing them well on their stay in the Mile High City. The mayor, however, has changed all that with his new star of the airport.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is the DIA voice of the holidays, running now through January 2.
“Welcome to the Mile High City,” he says. “This is quarterback Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos, wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season.” The message plays over a piano tapping out the tune “Jingle Bells”
Mayor Hancock said this about the change:
“For the holidays, I am handing off this very important duty of greeting visitors to our great city to someone known for the best audibles in the business. Peyton Manning earned this call by going long in his efforts to take the Broncos to another AFC West championship. We’ll be cheering on him and the team as they drive toward another Super Bowl!”
Last year, none other than Denver deity John Elway was the recording saying, simply, “Go Broncos!”
