Fans weigh in on broadcasters’ NFL debut


Kirk Herbstreit is a longtime broadcaster for college football and is a staple of ESPN’s College GameDay coverage. However, he added an additional role to his cover in 2022.

In the 2022 season, Herbstreit tries his hand at NFL coverage. He serves alongside Al Michaels as part of Thursday Night Football coverage for matches shown on Amazon Prime.

For NFL Week 2, that includes a showpiece AFC West game in Kansas City between the Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers. It should be a great game, and Herbstreit and Michaels are tasked with doing the action justice with their call.

Initial reactions to the show have been mixed but mostly positive. While some fans have noted that it is indeed odd to hear Herbstreit on the call of an NFL game, most agree that the transition will likely be smooth.

It will be interesting to see how Herbstreit and Michael team up throughout the year. They will no doubt develop even more chemistry as the year progresses.
