Al Michaels, the longtime NFL play-by-play broadcaster, is Amazon’s pick to call “Thursday Night Football” games streaming on Prime Video this season, according to the New York Post.
Michaels will join ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit in the booth — another hire by the tech giant, reported earlier this month.
Michaels, 77, had been calling “Sunday Night Football” games for NBC and just did his 11th Super Bowl for the network last month.
The move to Amazon comes after Joe Buck and Troy Aikman jumped from Fox over to ESPN to handle “Monday Night Football.” Buck signed a 5-year, $75 million deal with ESPN.
Amazon first took over streaming rights for the NFL’s “TNF” in 2017, and last year signed an 11-year deal in the league’s first all-digital pact with a media partner.
