Mike Tirico’s jump from ESPN to NBC is finally about to show itself this season.
The former voice of Monday Night Football is set to call four games—Green Bay/Washington Sun. Nov. 20, Pittsburgh/Indianapolis Thanksgiving night, Kansas City/Denver Sun. Nov. 27, and New York Giants/Philadelphia Thurs. Dec. 22.
The move is reportedly intended to give 72-year-old Al Michaels, the current voice of NBC football, some time off. Tirico will call the games with long-time NBC color commentator Chris Collinsworth.
