LOS ANGELES, Calif. – July 14, 2014 – NBCSN is launching NBCSN Sunday Sports Report, a weekly one-hour program that will showcase the news and highlights of the sports properties that primarily air on NBC and NBCSN. The one-hour program premieres August 17 at 11:30 p.m. ET. NBC Sports Group Chairman Mark Lazarus made the announcement today at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Los Angeles, Calif.
Every Sunday night, NBCSN Sunday Sports Report will go in-depth into the high-profile sports properties that are carried by NBC Sports Group, including the Olympics and Olympic sports, NFL, NASCAR, NHL, Premier League, golf, Triple Crown horse racing, Notre Dame Football, Formula One, IndyCar and more.
The show will use NBC Sports Group’s exclusive access to these sports as well as the distinct voices of its Emmy Award-winning roster of on-air commentators to offer viewers a point of view they haven’t yet seen or heard.
“This new program will be a weekly deep dive into the sports and events that NBC Sports Group presents on a regular basis,” said Sam Flood, Executive Producer, NBC Sports & NBCSN. “Although we will cover must-see moments from other sports, the show’s primary focus is to use our exclusive access and signature voices to go in-depth into the games, matches and races that viewers are accustomed to seeing on NBC and NBCSN.”
Liam McHugh will host NBCSN Sunday Sports Report from Studio 3 at NBC Sports Group’s International Broadcast Center in Stamford, Conn. The show will feature live and taped remote reports, as well as NBC Sports Group commentators, experts and guests providing commentary from Studio 3.
During the NFL season, viewers will see post-game reports and commentary from the site of Sunday Night Football featuring Cris Collinsworth, Josh Elliott, and Hines Ward, as well as interviews from Michele Tafoya. McHugh, Mike Milbury, Keith Jones and Pierre McGuire will talk pucks during NHL season. Rick Allen, Jeff Burton, Marty Snider and Kelli Stavast will provide regular NASCAR reports, while Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Earl, Robbie Mustoe and Kyle Martino will provide Premier League commentary.
Viewers can expect similar reports, commentary and interviews for other sports during their respective seasons.
