NBC SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL sideline reporter MICHELE TAFOYA will serve as NFL Insider for NBC SPORTS RADIO this season. TAFOYA will appear on various network shows and will do interviews with affiliates.

NBC SPORTS RADIO has been a fun platform for me over the past couple of seasons, so I'm looking forward to this extended role.”
“We are lucky to have someone of MICHELE’s caliber join us this season in a more permanent role,” said WESTWOOD ONE President/EVP Corporate Marketing SUZANNE GRIMES. “She’s got game, for sure. Her reporter’s eye-view from the sides give her an exceptional take on what’s really happening on the field. Plus, her years of experience and incredible insider’s knowledge make her the perfect asset to our in-depth football coverage on NBC SPORTS RADIO."
NBC SPORTS VENTURES SVP ROB SIMMELKJAER said, "MICHELE is one of the very best in the sports broadcasting business, and our listeners will love hearing her insights on a regular basis."
