FOX has found their new No. 1 NFL broadcast team, replacing Joe Buck and Troy Aikman with Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen.
The faces you see and the voices you hear on major NFL broadcasts will be a little different this year.
Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have left the NFL on the FOX broadcast to call Monday Night Football on ESPN. Now we know who will replace them.
On Tuesday, FOX announced a new No. 1 broadcast team including Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen.
FOX has a new No. 1 broadcast team for NFL games
Burkhardt will take over from Buck as the leading play-by-play announcer. Olsen joins Aikman as a leading analyst. They were FOX’s No. 2 broadcast team for NFL games last year.
Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi will be on the sidelines as journalists.
The new team will make its debut on Sunday, September 11, when the Vikings take on the Packers in this week’s game.
Olsen, who is in his second year of broadcasting with FOX, may just have a place for Tom Brady when he decides to retire. The broadcaster has reportedly promised Brady the leading analyst spot with a $ 375 million 10-year deal.
Brady retired earlier this year only to retire at the age of 44. He will be 45 before the season starts. If he hangs the clubs up after the 2022 season, he will likely push Olsen back to the No. 2 team. Whether Burkhardt will stay with the No. 1 team is uncertain.
The regular NFL season begins Thursday, Sept. 8, with the Bills taking on the Rams in Los Angeles. That game will be on NBC.
