CBS Announces 2014 NFL Broadcast Pairings
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – CBS has announced pairings for its 2014 NFL broadcast coverage, partnering newcomer Trent Green with veteran play-by-play announcer Greg Gumbel.
Green was announced to be joining the network in April, along with fellow former players Tony Gonzalez and Bart Scott, who will sit behind the desk for “The NFL Today,” as part of a string of changes at the network, including the departures of Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe.
The network’s leading pair of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will remain, with the addition of Tracy Wolfson as lead reporter – the trio will handle the recently announced Thursday game schedule, as well as select Sunday games.
Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts have been named the No. 2 broadcast team, and the Gumbel-Green pair will handle tertiary games.
Other broadcast pairings include Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon, Spero Dedes and Solomon Wilcots, Andrew Catalon, Steve Tasker and Steve Beurlein.
Additional sideline reporting will be handled by Jenny Dell, formerly of New England Sports Network, and Evan Washburn, previously with CBS Sports Network.
The full ‘The NFL Today’ pre-game show will consist of James Brown, Boomer Esiason, Bill Cowher, Gonzalez and Scott, with “NFL Insider” duties continuing to be handled by Jason La Canfora.
