27 April 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- NFL Network said Wednesday that it had hired Bryant Gumbel and Cris Collinsworth to call its Thursday-Saturday primetime package that will begin in the fall. "This is a really milestone development at this network," NFL Network president Steve Bornstein told reporters Wednesday, hours before the network held its first upfront presentation to advertisers in Manhattan. Gumbel and Collinsworth will team up -- with Gumbel doing play-by-play and Collinsworth providing analysis -- beginning with the Thanksgiving matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos. Gumbel will do play-by-play for every game; Collinsworth will be on hand for six games, with the other two in the package featuring an analyst yet to be named. »

NFL Net eye Gumbel, Collinsworth for primetime

20 April 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- The NFL Network has reached out to former Today host Bryant Gumbel and NBC and Fox analyst Cris Collinsworth, among others, to possibly anchor its upcoming Thursday night primetime package this fall. Under one of the plans floated Thursday, Gumbel would do the play-by-play while Collinsworth would be the lead analyst for eight regular-season games on either Thursdays or Saturday nights. The first game -- between the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs -- will be telecast on Thanksgiving. Sources confirmed that Gumbel and Collinsworth had been contacted but stressed that no deals have been reached with either of them. The NFL Network has received approval from their employers -- HBO, where Gumbel hosts Real Sports and Collinsworth appears on Inside the NFL, and NBC, where Collinsworth is scheduled to be an analyst on the new Sunday Night Football show -- to talk to them. »
