Marv Albert Joins The NFL on CBS

CBS Sports has hired legendary sports play-by-play announcer Marv Albert for The NFL On CBS.

“Marv Albert is recognized throughout sports broadcasting as one of its true legends,” said Sean McManus, chairman, CBS Sports. “Very few in the broadcasting industry can claim his combined accomplishments and remarkable longevity. We are extremely excited to add Marv to our NFL ON CBS team.”

Albert, who turns 70 this week, will continue his roles at TNT as the lead play-by-play basketball announcer and at CBS Sports’ and Turner Sports’ as part of their coverage of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. However, Albert’s role with the YES Network calling the New Jersey Nets will come to an end.

He’s no stranger to football, serving as the play-by-play voice for Westwood One Radio’s coverage of Monday Night Football from 2002-09.

Prior to calling football games in the booth, Albert called the NFL on NBC for 19 years.
