New ‘Sunday Night Football’ Broadcast Crew Announced

Out with the old, in with the new, kind of.

NBC announced their new “Sunday Night Football” broadcast crew on Tuesday, officially revealing the replacements for play-by-play man Al Michaels and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.

Mike Tirico, NBC’s longtime sports broadcaster, will now be joining Cris Collinsworth in the booth for play-by-play, and Melissa Stark will be doing the sideline reporting.

“’Sunday Night Football’ is destination viewing and we are thrilled to have Mike, Cris and Melissa call the action and tell the stories that football fans have come to expect from primetime TV’s #1 show,” NBC Sports chairman Pete Bevacqua said in a statement.

The trio will work its first game together at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in primetime on Thursday, Aug. 4 on NBC and Peacock. On Thursday, Sept. 8, Tirico, Collinsworth and Stark will call the NFL Kickoff Game on NBC and Peacock.
