THE NFL SHOW RETURNS TO ITV WITH NEW HOST CRAIG DOYLE
The National Football League (NFL) returns to ITV this week for its second year in a three-year deal announced by ITV last year.
Sports and This Morning presenter Craig Doyle will be the new host of the weekly The NFL Show on ITV, replacing Laura Wood when it returns on Friday 8th September. Craig will be joined by award-winning analysts Osi Umenyiora, a two-time Super Bowl winner, and Jason Bell.
Last year's partnership marked the NFL’s return to ITV for the first time since the network aired the last of its three consecutive Super Bowls in 2007.
Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport, said last year: “This deal will bring to ITV viewers the very best of the NFL each week in our highlights shows throughout the season as well as key live games. We’re delighted to be able to offer viewers, free to air, across our channels as well as the ITV Hub, the unique spectacle and action the NFL brings.”
ITV’s NFL programming will also be broadcast on STV in Scotland and Virgin Media in Ireland, while all programming will be available on demand on ITVX.
