Men In Blazers’ Roger Bennett to Join NBC Sports Studio Team as EPL Special Contributor

Following yesterday’s story in The Wall Street Journal that NBC Sports has decided to sign the Men In Blazers to a weekly TV show that will appear during the Premier League season on NBCSN, more details have been released today.

The big news is that Men In Blazers co-host Roger Bennett will contribute to studio shows throughout the season, where he’ll serve as a special contributor, providing on-site features from the UK and making monthly studio appearances alongside Rebecca Lowe.

Meanwhile, a special, digital-only version of Men in Blazers will be available on Friday of every Premier League match week. The videos, along with their weekly podcast, will be housed in a Men in Blazers section on NBCSports.com.

The news means that Men In Blazers will be leaving ESPN’s Grantland, where the duo has published their weekly podcast for the past few years.

The addition of Bennett to the NBC Sports studio will add some frivolity to the set for the upcoming season.

In May, World Soccer Talk suggested that NBC should add another person to the studio crew to mix things up. Bennett is certainly someone who fits that bill.
