Longtime ESPN NFL Primetime hosts Chris Berman and Tom Jackson will reunite for a special addition of the show on Sunday, a day shy of the one-year anniversary in which the network’s NFL studio was renamed in their honor, according to ESPN’s Bill Hofheimer.

The duo began working together during the show’s launch in 1987 and continued until Jackson’s retirement from broadcasting in 2016.

NFL Primetime has served as a staple for ESPN’s roundup coverage of the league’s games on Sunday nights for more than 30 seasons.

Berman, who retired 12 months ago, is also expected to have an undetermined role in ESPN’s coverage leading up to the Super Bowl, according to Awful Announcing.

The veteran broadcasters will also be joined by former Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown analyst Keyshawn Johnson.

The special addition of Primetime will air live on ESPN following the NFC Championship Game, which is expected to be around 10 p.m. EST.
