Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb will join the NBC Sports Radio lineup as a contributor, beginning on Super Bowl week. The six-time Pro Bowl quarterback will serve as an NFL lead analyst for NBC Sports Radio shows throughout the week and do weekly call-ins to affiliated stations. McNabb will also play a role in a soon to be announced daily talk program, that will debut April 1 as the network expands its programming lineup.
Dial Global Executive VP/GM Chris Corcoran said, “Adding a former star player like Donovan McNabb just adds another key ingredient to the exciting lineup we’re building with NBC Sports Radio. He brings a strong voice and a unique perspective, giving our affiliates, advertisers and listeners more great content. McNabb is another very exciting addition and we’re thrilled to have him on our team.”
McNabb added, “As I continue to segue further into the broadcasting field, adding a radio relationship like Dial Global and NBC Sports Radio is the perfect next step. This platform allows me a weekly forum to communicate with fans on a personal basis and I’m excited for the opportunity.”
NBC Sports Radio launched its full weekend lineup of programming on January 5 and will expand to full 24/7 talk programming in April.
