Brett Favre To Become Host on SiriusXM’s NFL Channel
Former Green Bay Packers legendary quarterback Brett Favre has a new gig and it involves satellite radio, as he is set to join SiriusXM NFL Radio as a host.
Favre will debut on SiriusXM with a special town hall style of show from Canton, Ohio on Aug. 5th, one day before he is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Beginning in September, Favre will host a series of hour-long programs during the 2016 NFL season.
”I am looking forward to working with SiriusXM NFL Radio this season. I’ve been a listener, both when I played and after I retired, and it’s a great place to talk about the game,” Favre said. ”I’m excited to talk with fans and weigh in with my opinions on what’s happening in the league, and it’ll be fun talking to some former colleagues now and then.”
”Brett was a once-in-a-generation player. His career, and particularly the enthusiasm with which he played the game, enthralled all football fans,” said Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s senior vice president of sports programming. ”His passion and free-spirited personality are perfect for radio.”
Favre will be inducted into the Hall of Fame as a Green Bay Packer.
