The actor, who has served as executive producer and head writer of The Jim Rome Show since leaving Salem in 2006, took to Twitter with the announcement of his new gig. "Very proud. Very excited," he wrote.
Very proud. Very excited. #GoodMorningFootball— Kyle Brandt (@KyleBrandt) July 19, 2016
Says Jordan Levin, Chief Content Officer of NFL Media: "We are excited to launch Good Morning Football and bring football fans a new and exciting way to start their day. While Good Morning Football will first and foremost be a morning show bringing viewers the NFL, sports, entertainment and news content they crave, it will be a catalyst for a broader discussion with a distinctive sensibility, tone, style and filter reflective of the talent and the producers. Good Morning Football will serve to be a truly cross-platform program that will allow us to connect with our fans in new and exciting ways."
Brandt will host alongside Kay Adams, Nate Burleson, and Peter Schrager.
In anticipation of Good Morning Football's Monday, August 1, debut, Brandt took to social media to announce that he has also started a radio game s how-like podcast called 20 Questions with Kyle Brandt. "I keep score. You'll like it."
