Tom Brady will make his Fox debut in 2024 – The Hollywood Reporter
Tom Brady will make his online debut for Fox Sports starting with the 2024 NFL season.
Brady revealed the news Monday on Colin Cowherd’s Fox Sports Radio show herd.
Brady, who officially retired from the NFL on February 1 (“for the good,” he said), signed a broadcast deal with Fox Corp. A year ago. The rich, multi-year agreement stipulates that he will join the network’s NFL broadcast booth whenever he decides to retire. At the time, Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch added that Brady will “also act as an ambassador for us, especially for clients and advertising initiatives. ”
Brady told Cowherd he’ll start working at Fox “in the fall of 2024,” thanking the network’s executives for giving him time to find his footing after retiring from the NFL, at the same time, adding that “decompression is very important.” Brady added that he wanted to “take a moment to really learn, get great at what I want to do” before starting his broadcasting career.
The deal gives Fox time to figure out what to do with their main NFL broadcast booth, which includes game-by-game broadcaster Kevin Burkhardt and analyst Greg Olsen, who have received rave reviews. in their first season.
Burkhardt and Olsen will call the Super Bowl on Sunday on Fox. Presumably, they will also call the next season, which begins this fall.
“50% I will watch the game and 50% listen to those two,” Brady said.
But Fox won’t be Brady’s only preoccupation. Brady also owns a pair of production studios (one for sports-related content and the other for entertainment content), and will presumably venture further into that world. He walked on the red carpet 80 for Brady (which he produces) last week.
