NFL Broadcast Boot Camp Set for Late June

Amani Toomer, Antonio Freeman and Drew Henson are among 16 former NFL players scheduled to participate in NFL Broadcast Boot Camp later this month in Mount Laurel, N.J., where broadcast veterans on both sides of the camera will provide instruction to ex-players who want to make the transition to the broadcast booth.

The program runs from June 20-23 and includes hands-on work in areas such as tape study, editing, show preparation, radio production, control room operation, studio preparation, production meetings, field reporting and game preparation. Each player will tape segments as a studio and game analyst and take part in a networking session with television executives. Each player also will serve as a live radio host on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

“We continue to look for ways to help players develop skills to enhance their post-NFL careers. Many of last year’s participants used this program as a career springboard, with some participants returning as instructors in subsequent years,” said NFL Senior Vice President of Labor Policy and Player Engagement Adolpho Birch.

Of the 90 players who took part in the Broadcast Boot Camp from 2007-2010, 36 have already earned broadcasting jobs as a result of their participation in the program.

“Broadcast Boot Camp is an excellent opportunity for former NFL players who are ready to take an important step towards the next chapter of their lives and prepare for a successful career off the field,” said Troy Vincent, NFL Vice President of Player Engagement. “The program provides participants with a comprehensive look at all aspects of the sports broadcasting industry and allows them to develop invaluable professional skills and relationships that can carry them through their post-NFL experience.”
