Arlo White Expected To Be Announced As EPL Announcer for NBC Sports

arlo white Arlo White Expected To Be Announced As EPL Announcer for NBC Sports

EXCLUSIVE: Arlo White, the voice of MLS on NBC, is expected to be announced next week as the lead play-by-play announcer for NBC’s coverage of the English Premier League, according to an EPL Talk source.

White moved from England to the United States in 2010 where he became the voice of MLS team Seattle Sounders. In March 2012, White became the play-by-play commentator for all MLS and US Men’s National Team games televised on NBC and NBC Sports Network. The 2013-14 Premier League season kicks off in August.

During his time with NBC covering MLS games, White quickly became a fan favorite among many soccer fans with his no-nonsense style. His knowledge of the game combined with his unmistakable voice will be a major boost to NBC’s coverage of the Premier League, scheduled for 2013-2016.

NBC has already confirmed that presenter Rebecca Lowe will be fronting NBC’s Premier League coverage, while Robbie Earle and Robbie Mustoe are expected to be confirmed as match analysts.

Slowly but surely, the pieces are coming together in regards to how NBC Sports will broadcast the Premier League to a US audience. More will be revealed next Tuesday when NBC Sports have scheduled a press conference where EPL Talk will be on hand to share the news.

What are your thoughts about Arlo White becoming the lead commentator for NBC’s coverage of the Premier League? And what’s your opinion about NBC adopting an approach of presumably having their own talent commentating the big match each weekend?
