Just officially announced today, Chris Rose of MLB Network’s abortion, Intentional Talk, will expand his horizons outside of baseball and join NFL Network as a studio host. He’ll host NFL Network’s Sunday highlight shows during the season, NFL GameDay Highlights and NFL GameDay Final replacing established hosts Rich Eisen and Fran Charles, respectively.
And he’ll be the host of the postgame edition of NFL Total Access which would follow Thursday Night Football.
Rose will continue as co-host of Intentional Talk on MLB Network weekdays.
So Rose is the first on-air personality to work at two league-owned networks simultaneously. It’ll be interesting to see if he can continue to handle the workload or choose to leave one network down the road.
Rose to Host NFL GameDay Highlights, NFL GameDay Final and the Thursday Night Edition of NFL Total Access
NFL Network has added veteran on-air talent Chris Rose to its ranks, it was announced today. Rose will host NFL Network’s signature Sunday night shows NFL GameDay Highlights and NFL GameDay Final, as well as the postgame edition of NFL Total Access following the network’s Thursday Night Football telecast.
“We’re happy to have Chris on board and he will serve as yet another valuable addition to our talented roster of hosts and analysts,” said NFL Network Executive Producer Eric Weinberger. “Both NFL GameDay Highlights and NFL GameDay Final have shown tremendous growth over the past few seasons and we have no doubt Chris will build on the success of these shows.”
NFL GameDay Highlights airs on NFL Network on Sunday nights at 7:30 PM ET during the NFL regular season and features analysts Steve Mariucci and Deion Sanders joining Rose to recap all of the day’s action with game highlights, post-game press conferences and commentary, as well as preview the upcoming Sunday night matchup.
Rose will also host NFL GameDay Final at 11:30 PM ET with a trio of Hall of Famers, joining Sanders, Marshall Faulk, and Michael Irvin to dissect all of Sunday’s action. With video of post-game press conferences, game highlights, player/coach interviews, expert analysis, a preview of Monday’s game and more, NFL GameDay Final provides everything viewers need to know about the week in the NFL.
In addition to his work for NFL Network, Rose hosts Intentional Talk on MLB Network. Previously, Rose served as an on-air host and play-by-play announcer for FOX Sports between 2000-2012 covering MLB, NFL, College Football and hosting The Best Damn Sports Show for nine years.
