This week, we told you about the new NFL Network morning show, Good Morning Football. The cast includes Fox NFL insider Peter Schrager along with Kay Adams of NBC/DirecTV, Kyle Brandt of the Jim Rome Show and ex-NFL receiver Nate Burleson. We now have more details of the new show from NFL Network.
First, the show will premiere on Monday, August 1 at 7 a.m. ET and will originate from the CBS Broadcast Center in New York. It marks the first time that NFL Network will have a show aired from New York City in its 13-year history.
For those worried that Schrager will leave Fox, fear no more. NFL Network says Schrager will continue to to be with Fox serving as a reporter for its NFL coverage and a senior writer for FoxSports.com.
In addition, Kay Adams who has been host of the Fantasy Zone Channel on DirecTV for the past two years, will continue in that role this season.
Brandt will leave the Jim Rome Show where he had been the executive producer since 2009.
And Burleson, who joined NFL Network in 2014 after 11 years as a player in the league, will be the ex-jock on the panel.
We noted in our earlier story that Good Morning Football will be produced by Michael Davies of Men in Blazers fame and will bring humor plus some offbeat approaches to the table.
In addition to the show, the program will offer a podcast, newsletter plus original content produced specifically for digital and social media platforms. So Good Morning Football will not just be a TV show, but a cross-platform experience.
And by producing the show from New York, NFL Network hopes it can bring a different energy than the NFL AM/NFL HQ morning programs that had originated from Los Angeles.
The show will air from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET Monday through Friday with an immediate re-air.
