Brett Favre To Host NFL Show On SiriusXM

Brett Favre
Legendary NFL quarterback Brett Favre, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this August, will be a host this upcoming season on SiriusXM NFL Radio, SiriusXM's exclusive 24/7 NFL channel.

It will be the first regular sports media role for the three-time NFL MVP since he retired after the 2010 season.

Favre will host a series of hour-long broadcasts during this season that will showcase the traits that made him a fan-favorite – his passion for the game on the field and his easy-going personality off it – and will give SiriusXM listeners an opportunity to interact with one of the game's all-time greats.  He will make his debut on SiriusXM NFL Radio on August 5 (6:00 pm ET) with a special "Town Hall" style show live from Canton, Ohio, where he and other members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2016 will be enshrined the next day.

After the Hall of Fame show, Favre will host the show live on a regular basis starting in September.

He and co-host Bruce Murray will discuss the headline news happening around the NFL, analyze the league's teams and players, and share his experiences from his career and his life since retiring.  Listeners nationwide will have the opportunity to call in to the show and talk with a player who rewrote the game's record book over his extraordinary 20-year professional career.

SiriusXM NFL Radio is available to listeners nationwide on channel 88 on satellite radios and on the SiriusXM app for authenticated subscribers with the SiriusXM All-Access package.

"I am looking forward to working with SiriusXM NFL Radio this season," said Favre.  "I've been a listener, both when I played and after I retired, and it's a great place to talk about the game.  I'm excited to talk with fans and weigh in with my opinions on what's happening in the league, and it'll be fun talking to some former colleagues now and then."
