Post NBC lands Madden for '06

NFL Notebook: Madden to move to NBC in '06
Thursday, June 16, 2005

By The Associated Press

John Madden was the first announcer Dick Ebersol thought of when NBC acquired the rights to the NFL's Sunday night package.

NBC announced yesterday in New York that it had signed Madden to a six-year deal to be the network's lead analyst for their NFL coverage beginning in 2006.

"We're just positively giddy to have John Madden join NBC's Sunday night football," said Ebersol, the chairman of NBC Universal Sports & Olympics.

Madden has spent the past three seasons teamed with Al Michaels on ABC's "Monday Night Football," a spot he will remain in for one more season.

"The whole thing [is] an opportunity to go somewhere where we're starting something new, something different," Madden said of moving to NBC. "... I just think that, doggone it, this is pretty good."

Ebersol said NBC is waiting until after the NBA Finals to talk with Al Michaels about teaming with Madden again.

Known for his folksy style and his love of football's grit and grime, Madden has won 14 Sports Emmys.

The Sunday night game was previously shown on ESPN, which will now televise the Monday night game. NBC also gets two first-round playoff games and the Super Bowl in 2009 and '12 as part of the deal.

Eh,I am not big on Madden as an announcer.He was a great couch,but all he has brought to announcing is the teleprompter.

I like Madden's commentary....He knows the game. MNF needs to bring back "Dandy" Don Meredith.

Al, Frank, and Dan.. Bring back that crew for a reunion season. I liked them all together. Al was the play by play, Dan was the guy who'd get fired up everytime a player sucked or a bad call was made, and Frank would just sit there and do the... yeah, uh huh's :D
