KEVIN HARLAN has gotten the nod to replace MARV ALBERT as play-by-pay voice of NFL MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL on WESTWOOD ONE. HARLAN, who calls SUNDAY NFL games for CBS SPORTS and has filled in on WESTWOOD ONE MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL broadcasts in the past, will join returning color commentator BOOMER ESIASON in the booth.
"Anyone who has ever heard KEVIN call a game knows exactly why we are thrilled to add an announcer of his caliber to our NFL talent roster -- full-time," said WESTWOOD ONE Pres. GARY SCHONFELD. "Fans, stations and advertisers are going to be very happy this fall."
"I am honored to have been selected as part of WESTWOOD ONE's MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL broadcast team with BOOMER ESIASON," said HARLAN. "I am truly humbled by the great voices that have held this position, including one of the legends of broadcasting, MARV ALBERT."
"KEVIN's detailed descriptions and infectious energy will have NFL fans nationwide huddled around their radios," added WESTWOOD ONE Sports Exec. Producer HOWARD DENEROFF. "I am looking forward to a super season as KEVIN and BOOMER continue the long legacy of great broadcast teams that have brought the game to life for millions of listeners on MONDAY nights."
