NBCSPORTSRADIO.COM debuts its first-ever digital-only show, "The 2 Robbies 'Football' Show," a PREMIER LEAGUE -focused program starring NBC SPORTS GROUP analysts ROBBIE EARLE and ROBBIE MUSTOE, this SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25th at 5p (ET).
The weekly one-hour show follows NBC SPORTS GROUP’s live PREMIER LEAGUE match coverage, and will stream live from its state-of-the-art INTERNATIONAL BROADCAST CENTER in STAMFORD, CT.
"The 2 Robbies 'Football”' Show will focus on the PREMIER LEAGUE and international soccer, featuring commentary and analysis from EARLE and MUSTOE, who will take calls and answer questions from listeners. The show will also feature interviews with top names in the sport, including current and former players, managers and analysts.
"The 2 Robbies 'Football' Show" will stream on NBCSPORTSRADIO.COM and the NBC SPORTS RADIO mobile app, with replays on-demand on both platforms.
Since NBC SPORTS GROUP kicked off its unprecedented PREMIER LEAGUE coverage in AUGUST 2013, EARLE and MUSTOE have worked alongside host REBECCA LOWE and fellow analyst KYLE MARTINO on live pre- and post-match shows, "Goal Zone," "Match of the Day," and "Match of the Day II," which provide in-depth analysis, post-match interviews, reactions from the day’s matches and highlights with match commentators.
"As the game continues to grow here in the U.S., I think it’s important we give the AMERICAN soccer fan a voice too,” said EARLE. “There will be no scripts or prompting, on this program ROBBIE MUSTOE and I will discuss only topics that the fans want to debate."
“More comment, more opinion on the beautiful game from ROBBIE EARLE and myself,” said MUSTOE. “We are looking forward to the opportunity to get football fans involved by taking viewer calls and hearing thoughts from fans across the country.”
“With the PREMIER LEAGUE more popular than ever in the U.S., we are excited to present this new program to soccer fans across the country,” said NBC SPORTS VENTURES VP ROB SIMMELKJAER. “We are looking forward to ROBBIE and ROBBIE entertaining our listeners with their wit, expertise and analysis following the first day of each PREMIER LEAGUE weekend.”
