Murray, who previously fronted Channel 5's coverage, will anchor Channel 4's two live NFL Wembley games on September 29 and October 27.

Nat Coombs and Mike Carlson will continue as Channel 4's punditry team for Sunday night football, which launches this weekend with the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.

Sunset+Vine, which jointly produced Channel 4's Paralympics coverage, is teaming up with the channel for the 2013/14 NFL season.

"The wealth of NFL programming on 4 allows us to bring viewers a great presenting team across all the shows," said Channel 4's sports commissioning editor Jamie Aitchison.

"Vernon, Nat and Colin are all avid fans of the NFL and their different styles alongside great knowledge and enthusiasm means our viewers are in for a treat.

"With Mike Carlson's superb insight and special guests throughout the season we can't wait to get going this weekend."
