NBCSN to Debut Weekly Men In Blazers TV Show Starting Late August

men in blazers NBCSN to Debut Weekly Men In Blazers TV Show Starting Late August

NBCSN will debut a weekly TV show from the Men In Blazers every Monday night beginning in late August, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The English duo of Michael Davies and Roger Bennett will be moving from ESPN to NBC after their successful World Cup show won over a large number of mainstream soccer fans.

The weekly TV show, which doesn’t have a name yet, will be focused on the Premier League.

“All of our focus, all of our commitment, all of our attention is focused solely on our relationship with the Premier League,” said Jon Miller, the president of programming for NBC and NBCSN. The Men in Blazers “are not going to stop talking about Major League Soccer, but the focus of their relationship with us will be the Premier League.”

In May, World Soccer Talk suggested 7 ways that NBC Sports could improve its Premier League coverage for the 2014-15 season. One of the suggestions was a weekly call-in show, which could end up being the form of the Men In Blazers show.

Whether or not this will be a smart move by NBC, we’ll have to wait and see how the show is. But given the popularity of the duo, it’s another win-win for NBCSN and Premier League coverage in the States.
