Which A-Team of Presenters, Pundits and Commentators Should NBC Hire For Its EPL Coverage?

brian moore commentator Which A Team of Presenters, Pundits and Commentators Should NBC Hire For Its EPL Coverage?

You’re in a meeting room with the major executives from NBC Universal and NBC Sports. The topic of discussion is what talent you want to pursue to build a world-class presentation of the Premier League for viewers in the United States.

Question is: Who do you recommend?

Consider the different positions you need to fill: A presenter, a few pundits — and perhaps an American-based commentator to bed in for certain Premier League commentaries. Or maybe you’d prefer to have more US-based commentators and co-commentators involved? And since NBC will have pre-match, half-time and post-match programming, as well as wrap-up shows, what talent would you recommend that NBC hires?

NBC’s Arlo White looks like a sure bet by NBC Sports. But what role would you have him in? And who do you build around him to ensure a quality production?

Post your suggestions below.
