Jennings Joins Veteran Play-By-Play Broadcaster Tim Brando & Sideline Reporter Jennifer Hale to Call Buccaneers at Packers
NEW YORK, NY – On Sunday, Nov. 3, Super Bowl Champion Greg Jennings returns to Lambeau Field where he will make his broadcasting debut as an NFL game analyst on FOX. The announcement was made today by John Entz, FOX Sports President of Production & Executive Producer.
“As a regular contributor to our studio shows, we are looking forward to seeing Greg on-site as an NFL game analyst,” Entz said. “Having recently retired, Greg will bring a unique insight and contemporary analysis to viewers this Sunday.”
Jennings joins seasoned play-by-play announcer Tim Brando and sideline reporter Jennifer Hale, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers visit Jennings’ former team, the Green Bay Packers, at Lambeau Field. Jennings shares his unique insights from FOX’s broadcast booth this Sunday only.
“Calling the game to be an absolute thrill for me,” said Jennings. “To have the opportunity to be back at Lambeau Field, a historic place where I have so many fond memories with the fans and my former teammates and coaches, is truly a blessing. I am looking forward to working with Tim, Jennifer and the entire FOX game crew for this broadcast.”
Jennings joined FOX Sports earlier this year as an NFL studio analyst contributing to a number of FS1 and FOX Sports studio shows, most notably as a regular guest on FS1’s FIRST THINGS FIRST, UNDISPUTED, THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD and SPEAK FOR YOURSELF. Jennings has also appeared several times this season on FOX Sports’ FOX NFL KICKOFF pregame show.
A native of Kalamazoo, Mich., Jennings attended Western Michigan University where he was a breakout star, becoming just the 11th player in NCAA Division I history to record three career 1,000-yard receiving seasons. The Green Bay Packers selected Jennings in the 2006 NFL Draft as the 52nd overall pick. In his seven seasons with the Packers he went on to help the team win Super Bowl XLV, where he caught two touchdowns in a thrilling 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jennings made two consecutive Pro Bowl appearances (2010 & 2011) as a member of the Packers. In 2013, he signed with the Minnesota Vikings, where he played for two years before signing with the Miami Dolphins. Jennings retired a season later at the age of 32. Jennings is deeply committed to the Greg Jennings Foundation, a private family foundation that partners with Michigan and Wisconsin organizations in educating youth by providing the necessary resources in order to help them reach their academic potential.
