Starting this weekend, Tiki Barber joins New York regional sports network SNY for its Giants playoff coverage. Barber who was a running back for the Football Giants and then an analyst for NBC’s Football Night in America as well as a correspondent for the Today Show, has not been seen on TV regularly since 2010 when the Peacock quietly dropped him after reports surfaced that he had an affair with a network intern.
Barber will be part of SNY’s Big Blue Live program that will air after the NFC Championship goes off the air. He’ll join hosts Chris Carlin and Gary Apple as well as fellow analyst Shaun O’Hara. We have the full details from this SNY press release.
‘Big Blue Live’ to air immediately after NFC Championship
SNY announced today that former Giants star RB Tiki Barber has joined SNY for the network’s New York Giants playoff coverage beginning this Sunday. In addition, former Giants offensive lineman Shaun O’Hara will continue his analyst role on SNY’s Giants coverage — including the network’s Big Blue Live post game show — which will air immediately after Sunday’s NFC Championship game. Big Blue Live will showcase all of the post-game press conferences, exclusive on-field interviews and reactions from both the Giants’ and 49ers’ players and coaches.
“I am looking forward to providing my insights for SNY’s Big Blue Live post game show. Hopefully it will be after a Giants win as they continue on the road to Indianapolis and the Super Bowl,” said Tiki Barber.
On-air talent for Big Blue Live will include Tiki Barber, Shaun O’Hara and hosts Chris Carlin and Gary Apple. In addition, SNY’s Giants reporter Mike Garafolo, NFL Insider Adam Schein and Jeané Coakley will contribute to Big Blue Live — reporting on-site from Candlestick Park.
More coming up later.
