Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer, two of sports’ most well-respected female reporters, will lead Amazon Prime Video’s streaming broadcast of the game, becoming the first female duo to broadcast an NFL game. From there, they’ll be covering 11 more Thursday night NFL games this season.
In the past, women have reported games, but always alongside a male analyst, play-by-play commentator, former player or former coach.
“NFL fans will hear history made this season—bringing two female announcers together to call an entire NFL game has never been done before,” Greg Hart, VP of Prime Video shared in a statement. “We are thrilled to have Andrea and Hannah bring their extensive knowledge of the game to fans on Prime Video.”
Hannah Storm currently serves as an ESPN SportsCenter anchor with a 90-minute Monday Night Football edition. She was the first ever female host of CNN Sports Tonight.
Andrea Kremer is the chief correspondent of the NFL Network, and was recently honored with the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award, which recognizes “long-time exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football.”
“With decades of experience as storytellers, we will be bringing a different voice and viewpoint to covering the game of football,” Andrea Kremer shared.
