The NFL broadcasts on four major channels: NBC, ESPN, CBS, and Fox. Here’s a look at the analysts and commentators for each channel.
The new NFL season is upon us and it wouldn’t be the same without all the amazing commentators and broadcasters who call the game. At a time when the crowds in the stadium would be limited, these commentators would really need to add to the entire feel of the game.
Here we look at the commentators for different broadcasters.
Play by Play Voice: Al Michaels
Analyst: Cris Collinsworth
Sideline Reporter: Michele Tafoya
Cris Collinsworth’s “Now here’s a guy…” will never get old. Michaels and Collinsworth form a dyanmic commentating duo. NBC is set to host the opening game of the 2020-21 NFL season and will be the broadcaster for Sunday Night Football games.
Play by Play Voice: Steve Levy
Analyst: Suzy Kolber
Sideline Reporter: Lisa Salters
ESPN is the host network for Monday Night Football games. These match-ups often pit the best teams in the league against each other and are a treat to watch.
Play by Play Voice: Jim Nantz
Analyst: Tony Romo
Sideline Reporter: Tracy Wolfson
Tony Romo is probably the best analyst in sports commentary right now. Watching games on CBS are always fun especially with Romo predicting each play before it happens. CBS will also be home to Super Bowl 55 in 2021.
Play by Play Voice: Joe Buck
Analyst: Troy Aikman
Sideline Reporter: Erin Andrews
Fox is now the host of all Thursday Night Football games in the NFL with the exception of the week 1 matchup. Fox was also the broadcaster for Superbowl 54 when the Chiefs beat the 49ers 31-20.
