Warner, who has filled in on select Monday Nights for the past few seasons, becomes only the fourth regular Monday Night radio analyst for Westwood One since its broadcast partnership with the NFL began forty years ago. Warner follows in the footsteps of Boomer Esiason (2000-2017), Matt Millen (1996-2000), and Hall of Fame Coach Hank Stram (1978-1984, 1987-1995).
Warner’s first broadcast for this season will be Monday Night, September 10th, when the Oakland Raiders host the Los Angeles Rams.
Since retiring from the NFL I have been blessed with tremendous opportunities as a broadcaster,” said Warner. “I have especially enjoyed working at NFL Network on NFL Gameday morning and my color-analyst role on radio for Westwood One. I couldn’t be more excited to continue both of those roles well into the future. I am grateful to Westwood One for this opportunity and for believing in me with this role. The bar has been set extremely high by Boomer Esiason and others, and I look forward to grabbing the torch, working hard, and maintaining the sense of excellence that has become synonymous with Westwood One. I also look forward to continuing my relationship with Kevin Harlan, who I believe is one of the best play-by-play people in the business. My hope is that together we can become one of the best teams in the business.”
Enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame last summer, Warner played 12 seasons in the NFL, leading two different franchises to Super Bowl appearances.
The 2018-2019 NFL regular season kicks off on Westwood One when the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles host the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night, September 6, 2018 at 7:30 pm ET. The Monday Night Football schedule begins with its annual doubleheader --- first, the New York Jets visit the Detroit Lions, followed by the Oakland Raiders hosting the Los Angeles Rams. Doubleheader coverage begins at 6:30 pm ET.
Westwood One’s NFL broadcast coverage can heard on nearly 500 terrestrial radio stations nationwide, as well as on SiriusXM, the TuneIn app, and on NFL Game Pass.
