Joe Buck and Hall of Famer Troy Aikman will once again anchor America's Game of the Week on FOX, and beginning this season they will be joined by Erin Andrews as the new lead sideline reporter. Andrews replaces Pam Oliver, who was demoted to the B team. Buck, Aikman and Andrews Week 1 assignment will be feature the Dallas Cowboys hosting the San Francisco 49ers at 4:25 pm.
Rising stars Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch fresh off an impressive first year, return as the B-team joined by Oliver as the field reporter. Their first assignment will be an NFL South showdown between New Orleans and Atlanta.
The veteran broadcast group of Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and on field analyst Tony Siragusa return for their eighth season. They will be in upstate New York for the Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills.
Former New York Giants lineman David Diehl makes his FOX Sports debut (replacing Brian Billick) with veteran Thom Brennaman and reporter Laura Okmin as they cover Washington at Houston.
Tampa Bay preseason announcers, Chris Myers and Ronde Barber (moving up from Tim Ryan's departure) will team up for the regular season, with reporter Jennifer Hale. They will remain in Central Florida for the Carolina Panthers and the Buccaneers.
Hall of Fame broadcaster Dick Stockton will return with a trifecta of partners when assigned. Stockton will call the sixth game on the weekly broadcast with either FOX Sports 1's Donovan McNabb, former QB and newly hired NFL and College Football analyst Brady Quinn (who is still in a position to sign an NFL contract) or former LB and new FOX hire Kirk Morrison. They will be joined by former college football reporter Kristina Pink. This appears to be a patch work solution for FOX after losing out on signing former Washington coach Mike Shanahan.
Stockton, Morrison and Pink will be in St. Louis for Week 1 as the Rams host the Minnesota Vikings.
Other talent expecting assignments on the NFL on FOX include Justin Kutcher, veteran Sam Rosen, FOX's lead College Football team of Gus Johnson and Charles Davis, new analyst hire Brendon Ayanbadejo, UFC on FOX's Mike Goldberg and FOX Sports Peter Schrager as a spot SLR, along with FOX Sports Live's Charissa Thompson.
The Noon time pregame show, FOX NFL Sunday will remain in tact, with Terry Bradshaw and Curt Menefee hosting the program, along with Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson and newly minted Hall of Famer, Michael Strahan. Mike Periera will return as the rules analyst with Jay Glazer as the NFL Insider and Rob Riggle supplying comedy and predictions.
FOX Sports 1's FOX NFL Kickoff will return at 11 am with Joel Klatt hosting with Brian Urlacher, Randy Moss and McNabb.
