ESPN Radio enters NFL game fray
ESPN Radio will air out-of-market broadcasts for Dolphins, Giants, Jets, Patriots and Steelers games starting this season.
ESPN said Tuesday that it had signed individual agreements with each club for Sunday afternoon games. The teams' games will continue to be broadcast on their official local stations in their home markets.
This is the first such national deal for ESPN Radio.
Herm Edwards, Bill Polian and Damien Woody will be among the analysts who work the games. Additional commentators and the complete schedule will be announced at a later date.
"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 Traug Keller, ESPN senior vice president, production business divisions. "We are excited to enter the NFL game business."Information from The Associated Press was included in this report.
