Tony Gonzalez didn’t lose interest in expressing his opinion and offering analysis on a football studio show. He just preferred to do it from Los Angeles instead of New York. Now he has that opportunity thanks to FOX Sports.
It was announced yesterday that the future Hall of Famer and former CBS NFL Today analyst is joining FOX Sports as a studio analyst starting with the 2017 season. Gonzalez will be added to FOX NFL Kickoff, the network’s hour-long pregame show which precedes FOX NFL Sunday. The program airs at 11am ET during the NFL season.
John Entz, President of Production & Executive Producer, FOX Sports said of Gonzaez’s addition, “Tony is an impressive talent with an infectious personality, and is the perfect addition to our FOX NFL Kickoff show. He brings a unique outlook that will really round out the table.”
Gonzalez added, “I can’t wait for this upcoming season to get underway and begin working with the FOX Sports family. It’s a great opportunity for me to continue sharing my passion for the game while remaining close to home.”
FOX NFL Kickoff includes Charissa Thompson, Colin Cowherd, Dave Wannstedt, and Joel Klatt. Gonzalez’s addition not only strengthens the show, but it gives the network a future option to consider for FOX NFL Sunday if Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, or Jimmy Johnson ever decided to retire or leave the network’s top pregame show.
