Burkhardt Joining NFL on Fox
According to SI.com, SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt will be adding to his already impressive resume.
Beginning with the pre-season, Burkhardt will join former NFL Safety John Lynch in the booth to call games for the NFL on Fox.
As many of you may know, Burkhardt has been calling games for the Dallas Cowboys radio network alongside Danny White since 2011 and has always had a passion for calling NFL games on TV.
Now that dream becomes a reality on August 8th when he joins Lynch in calling the pre-season game between the 49ers and Broncos.
Burkhardt will have a chance to immediately compete for one of Fox’s top 5 broadcast pairings if he performs well. Currently, Joe Buck/Troy Aikman, Thom Brennaman/Brian Billick, and Kenny Albert/Daryl Johnson are locked in as the network’s top 3 pairings.
Burkhardt remains under contract with SNY through the 2014 season.
Best of luck to Kevin!
Tip of the hat to MMO user Alex68 for finding this story and bringing it to my attention.
About the Author: Michael J. Branda
My time with MMO began in July of 2009 when I wrote a Fan Post defending Omar Minaya (before it was cool to do that.) I grew up a Mets fan with the mid 1980's teams. My favorite Met of all-time is (and was) Wally Backman. When it comes to sabermetrics versus old school thinking, I like to think I meet in the middle. I believe thinking of new ways to get answers is helpful, especially when the same way has not produced results. However, I think over-thinking certain situations can get you into trouble. I'm excited for the new regime, because I believe they have pieces in place to focus on several aspects of the Mets organization. I've waited this long for a World Series, waiting a few more years for another chance isn't going to kill me.
