I know Funimation has done broadcast dubs for its titles it streams, and is the only company to do so.

I think Crunchyroll should start doing broadcast dubs and dubbing its own titles, and if another licensor picks up home video rights, and releases it on DVD/Blu-Ray, they can either chose the Crunchyroll dub or their own dub. Its time for Crunchyroll to start hiring voice actors or contract with a voice acting studio to start doing broadcast dubs. If there are any Insert songs that are sung by any anime characters, such as karaoke or concert scenes, or any scenes where a character sings, the song should be dubbed if possible. If funimation can do it, so can Crunchyroll. Just try it.

If you take my suggestion and start streaming broadcast dubs, i'll subscribe.

It should be noted that Funimation has a strong prospect of being able to re-use most of the dub for a later home video release. CR doesn't have that option to defray costs. A third party might have difficulty getting the same voice actors for the "clean up" dub work for home video release, and thus the dub would probably go unused (especially if CR didn't have home video rights to offer as part of the package).

The "only company to do so" might not be correct, depending on what you would call a "broadcast dub". Aniplex's dub of Durarara!! X2 runs about 2 months behind the episodes airing in Japan (and the sub simulcast), vs. I believe around 4 weeks delay for Funimation's broadcast dubs.
