The game is going to be streamed on Amazon Prime as part of their 11-game deal with the NFL this season, and Amazon announced today that the play-by-play duties will be handled by Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer. This will mark the first time that an NFL game is called by an all-female booth. Earlier this year, Beth Mowins of ESPN became the first woman to call a nationally-televised NFL game in over 30 years when she called the second half of ESPN’s Monday Night Football doubleheader, but this will be the first time that both halves of the commentary booth will be women.
Both are certainly qualified to be up there. Storm has had numerous hosting jobs over the course of her career, handling everything from the NFL to the NBA to the Olympics and significantly more. Kremer was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier this year as the winner of the annual Pete Rozelle Award, which recognizes “long-time exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football.”
The Storm/Kremer combination will be one of four commentary options for anyone watching the game on Amazon Prime. Prime viewers can also have a Spanish commentary team, a team from the United Kingdom, or. . .I guess. . .you could listen to the regular Thursday Night Football combination of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.
Will you be listening to the first all-woman announcing team to call an NFL game on Thursday night, folks?
