FOX's 2008-2009 NFL Announcer Pairings

Friday, August 22, 2008


There still hasn't been an official release by Fox of teams but Pro Football Weekly has received word of the pairings. According to Barry Jackson of the Orlando Sentinel (who writes for PFW as well), there aren't going to be many changes outside of the creation of a seventh team of Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick, who FOX hired back in April.

Billick will also be a roving analyst, working with other two-man teams, but that's anything different than what FOX said when they first hired him. Everything else stays exactly the same! Here they are in case you forgot....

Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Pam Oliver
Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa
Dick Stockton and Brian Baldinger
Sam Rosen and Tim Ryan
Matt Vasgersian and J.C. Pearson
Ron Pitts and Tony Boselli
Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick


As far as week one, Buck and Aikman will be in Cleveland for the Browns-Cowboys game at 4:15pm and Albert, Johnston and Goose will be in Philly for the Eagles-Rams contest at 1pm. The other FOX games that weekend are Lions-Falcons, Seahawks-Bills, Bucs-Saints, Panthers-Chargers and Cards-9ers. I'll have the full schedule and the coverage maps via The 506 when they become available. In the meantime, feel free to make your guesses in the comments and enjoy the full FOX schedule for the season.

I'd criticize Siragusa, but I'm afraid he'd sit on me.

The new Coors Light commercials with Billick are priceless because he's an idiot and would answer their questions the exact same way.

Ian Eagle said he's doing Jags-Titans in week 1; also, Foutsie is supposed to "float" between Enberg/Criqui/MacAtee/Bolerjack, so he may be off week 1.

Check cbssports.com, find CBS Sports TV in the dropdown(under "More), they have the full release with the announcer pairings: I stand corrected on Bolerjack, he's not part of the NFL crew.

Or failing that, click on the CBS Announcing Teams thread that was posted here on Thursday. It's basically the same thing.

Joe Buck and Kenny Albert: Monuments to Nepotism and its corresponding mediocrity.
