After leaving NBC’s Sunday Night Football just before the 2011 season, Andrea Kremer has spent her time reporting for HBO’s Real Sports and working the 2012 Olympics for the Peacock.
Now, she’ll be back on the NFL, working for NFL Network to report on player health and safety. It’s a bit of a full circle for Andrea as she worked in the 1980′s at NFL Films as a producer/reporter.
For NFL Network, Andrea will be the chief correspondent for a newly-formed unit that will be staffed with experienced producers and reporters. It appears that NFL Network won’t shy away from some journalism which is appreciated by your humble blogger.
We have more details of Andrea’s hiring and what she’ll be doing for NFL Network.
