DIAL GLOBAL and NBC SPORTS RADIO have announced the addition of former NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS and SAN DIEGO CHARGERS star RODNEY HARRISON to host a two-hour weekend NFL talk show, "SAFETY BLITZ," for the new NBC SPORTS RADIO, starting SEPTEMBER 8th. HARRISON currently an analyst for NBC television's "FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA" studio show, will also appear as a commentator on other NBC shows during the week.
HARRISON said, “I am very excited to add radio to my broadcasting platforms. Safety Blitz will be consistent with my approach on FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA -- hard hitting with content that the listener will find entertaining and informative. Our goal is to provide the audience with as much insight as possible all of which will be packed into a fast moving two-hour weekend show.”
EVP/GM CHRIS CORCORAN added, “We are thrilled to be able to announce that RODNEY will be joining NBC SPORTS RADIO. RODNEY’s arrow continues to climb in the media space and we see a very bright future for him in radio.”
SVP, NBC Sports Ventures and International ROB SIMMELKJAER said, “With the launch of NBC SPORTS RADIO just 12 days away, we are thrilled to add RODNEY HARRISON to our growing list of talented sports radio personalities. We anticipate RODNEY’s transition to radio to be as seamless as his transition was from the football field to television, where he went from being one of the fiercest competitors in the game to one of the most respected voices in the space. He is the latest in what we expect to be many NBC SPORTS television personalities who will join our radio team.”
