The change will take place January 5 when NBC Sports Radio debuts a new three-hour football-focused program featuring Mike Florio, creator of ProFootballTalk on NBCSports.com and co-host of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN. In addition to hosting Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, Florio is a regular contributor to NBC's Football Night in America, the Sunday Night Football postgame show on NBC, and the Sunday Sports Report on NBCSN.
"We are excited to bring Mike's unparalleled NFL insight to our NBC Sports Radio team," said Rob Simmelkjaer, SVP, NBC Sports Ventures. "The fan appetite for smart NFL talk is insatiable, and we are proud to bring them one of the most respected voices in the industry." "Adding Mike Florio and ProFootballTalk to the already impressive lineup of NBC Sports Radio brings huge insight, knowledge, and credibility to our ever-growing family of great radio stations," said Jack Silver, NBC Sports Radio's program director. "Mike is a strong voice to have on a daily basis breaking down the biggest sport on the planet."
