Collinsworth to NBC


Recommended Posts

NEW YORK (July 13, 2005) -- Cris Collinsworth will leave Fox to become a studio analyst and co-host of NBC's Sunday night football, which will begin during the 2006 NFL season.

It will be the second stint with NBC for Collinsworth, the former Cincinnati wide receiver, who was with the network from 1990-96.

Last season, Collinsworth was an analyst along with Troy Aikman on Fox's lead game telecast team with Joe Buck doing play-by-play. Collinsworth joined Fox in 1998 as a studio analyst and also has worked on HBO's Inside the NFL.

He played for the Bengals from 1981-88.

Under its new contract with the NFL, NBC will have a one-hour studio show before the game telecast, which will start shortly after 8 p.m. on the East Coast.
