The Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and NFL Network analyst will join Kevin Harlan in the Westwood One Sports NFL broadcast booth as the new lead color analyst for Monday Night Football and the Super Bowl. Warner has filled in on occasional Monday nights over the past few years. He follows in the footsteps of Boomer Esiason (2000-2017), Matt Millen (1996-2000), and Hall of Fame Coach Hank Stram (1978-1984, 1987-1995). Warner’s first broadcast for this season will be September 10, when the Oakland Raiders host the Los Angeles Rams.
“We have been proud partners of the NFL for more than four decades and our best-in-class broadcasts feature the brightest stars from the league,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP, Marketing, Cumulus Media and President, Westwood One. “Kurt Warner is a keen observer with a great eye and unique analysis. He adds another layer of authenticity, knowledge, and expertise to our roster and is an incredible asset for our loyal and passionate listeners and engaged advertisers.”
“To have a player, and person, of Kurt Warner’s caliber become our lead analyst is incredibly exciting,” said Howard Deneroff, EVP/Executive Producer, Westwood One Sports. “We look forward to Kevin and Kurt working together full-time, and we are confident that they will continue the legacy of great Westwood One broadcast teams which have informed and entertained listeners on Monday nights for decades.”
