It’s been rumored for a few days that former NFL wide receiver Randy Moss would join the broadcasting ranks and today we have official confirmation as Moss has been brought on with Fox Sports 1.
The always opinionated Moss should make for good television, something Fox Sports apparently believes as well.
As far as Moss’ duties? At first, it sounds as if he’ll appear on both Fox Football Daily and Fox NFL Kickoff, two new shows the network has crafted up:
Fox Sports announced something that had been rumored since Friday: Moss will join Fox Sports 1 as an NFL analyst. The former wide receiver will contribute to Fox Football Daily and Fox NFL Kickoff, two brand new NFL-themed shows that FS1 will debut this year.
Moss was part of a larger announcement of the cast for the two shows. Joining him will be hosts Curt Menefee and Mike Hill, fellow analysts Ronde Barber, Brian Urlacher and Scott Fujita, as well as network rules analyst Mike Pereira and college football analyst Joel Klatt. Insider extraordinaire Jay Glazer will have an increased presence on the two shows. Current Fox NFL Sunday regulars Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson, Troy Aikman, Michael Strahan and John Lynch will also appear on the two shows.
Fox Football Daily will obviously be a daily show (as if you couldn’t tell) while Fox NFL Kickoff will be an hour long pre-show to Fox’s National pre-game show.
Because what you need is another pre-show, right?
The network will begin airing on August 17th.
