WWE Superstar and color commentator Pat McAfee recently revealed that he is in talks with Amazon to start coverage for “Thursday Night Football” this fall to kick off the upcoming NFL season. The talks also involve “The Pat McAfee Show” airing on Prime Video. The FanDuel-sponsored show currently airs weekdays on YouTube and Sirius XM. These are strictly preliminary talks and nothing has been set in stone at this time.
Currently, Thursday Night Football will feature Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreit calling the games. McAfee had mentioned the talks before and noted before Herbstreit was hired that he didn’t want to be a color commentator in the booth due to scheduling conflicts.
McAfee wrote on Twitter: “Hey… Let’s all keep it cool but like.. I’m 1000% UP TO SOMETHING.”
Herbstreit replied: “Finally coming to [College GameDay]?!?? Cmon now…it’s time!!!”
