Ward joins NBC Sports team

Posted by Teresa Varley on May 31, 2012 – 3:45 pm

Former Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is joining a new team for the upcoming football season, the NBC Sports team. Ward will be a part of the network’s Football Night in America Sunday night show as well as other NFL related roles.

“We think Hines is a perfect match for television because he brings with him a unique combination of charisma and football experience, which he demonstrated on our Super Bowl pre-game show from Indianapolis,” said Sam Flood, executive producer, NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network in a release that was issued to announce Ward’s hiring. “He’s an opinionated personality who can draw upon his 14 years of experience, having excelled at the highest levels of the game. Just don’t expect him to dance.”

Ward will also appear on NBC SportsTalk with Mike Florio and Sports Illustrated’s Peter King on NBC Sports Network.

“I am really excited,” said Ward via the release. “It’s not every day that you get the chance to work for a powerhouse like the NBC Sports Group. It is a big honor for me and I am looking forward to making the most of this great opportunity.”
