Al Michaels joins NBC Sports
"When we made the deal with the NFL this spring, there were four key stars I knew I wanted to build our football team around, but I wondered from the beginning, if I would be lucky enough to get them all," said NBC Sports chief Dick Ebersol. "If you had asked me in mid-summer if I was really going to be able to pull this off, I would have said there's no way in hell, but that didn't stop me from trying. And, as it's come to pass over the last six months, I've learned more clearly than ever before, patience really does pay off."
Michaels reportedly left ABC over a disagreement regarding the future direction of Monday Night Football, which is moving to ESPN.
