COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS has added WEST COAST-based broadcasters for its NFL football coverage this year. Sports broadcasting icon LEE "HACKSAW" HAMILTON will do play-by-play, with former NFL player CURTIS CONWAY doing the color for selected NFL SUNDAY afternoon radio broadcasts.
HAMILTON and CONWAY will split duties calling SUNDAY afternoon NFL games with the previously announced duo of CHRIS CARRINO -- longtime voice of NEW JERSEY NETS -- and former NFL player and NFL NETWORK analyst BRIAN BALDINGER.
"The world stops at 1p on SUNDAY afternoons for NFL football," HACKSAW said. "It means so much to the fans across AMERICA. We will put a special signature on our NFL broadcasts. I am glad to join COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS. Starting something brand new is so very exciting."
"I can't wait for the start of the season," CONWAY added. "It is an honor to join LEE and the rest of the broadcast team."
"Our goal was to have two teams -- EAST and WEST COAST-based broadcasters -- that offer listeners a fresh perspective on the games," Compass Media Networks Sports GM/Exec. Producer MICHELLE SALVATORE said. "We are thrilled to have LEE and CURTIS join us."
