Legendary NFL commentator and CBS Sports host James Brown is joining CBS News as a special correspondent. Brown will report for and appear on all CBS News broadcasts, with his first appearance slated for Saturday’s installment of “CBS This Morning.”
“Audiences know JB as the face of “The NFL Today” and other sports broadcasts — what they may not know is his curiosity about the news,” said CBS News president David Rhodes in a statement. “His wide-ranging interests from sports to faith to community service will be great assets to CBS News and to our viewers.”
He will of course remain in his current role at “The NFL Today” and on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.”
