ESPN Radio Enters NFL Sunday Afternoon Syndication
ESPN Radio has signed individual multi-year agreements with the New York Giants, New York Jets, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins for out-of-market Sunday afternoon syndication rights beginning with the 2013 season. These agreements mark the first time ESPN Radio will broadcast NFL game action nationally on its over-the-air terrestrial network.
The teams will continue to broadcast in their home markets through their official local stations. "Adding the NFL to ESPN Radio's play-by-play mix, which already includes MLB, NBA, BCS, and the new college football championship starting in 2015, strengthens an already unparalleled and valuable lineup to advertisers, our affiliates and sports fans," said ESPN Senior VP/Production Business Divisions Traug Keller. "We are excited to enter the NFL game business."
ESPN NFL analysts Herm Edwards, Bill Polian and Damien Woody will each work several of ESPN Radio's national broadcasts. Additional commentators and the complete schedule will be announced at a later date.
