Showtime said veteran sports commentator Adam Schein has signed on as host of Inside The NFL, the weekly news and features program that returns for an eighth season on the premium programmer on Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. He replaces last year's host, Greg Gumbel, and will work alongside former NFL quarterbacks Phil Simms and Boomer Esiason and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall on the show. Former NFL star Michael Irvin also will appear as an occasional guest analyst, Showtime said during today's CBS NFL Media Day.
A TV mainstay dating back to 1977 (running most of that time on HBO), Inside The NFL is produced by CBS Sports and NFL Films and airs Tuesday nights during the NFL season through Feb. 9, 2016. NFL Network will re-air the show on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT throughout the season.
“Inside The NFL continues to evolve and, even after 35-plus years on the air, it remains one of the most ground-breaking shows on television,” Stephen Espinoza, executive vice president and general manager, Showtime Sports, said in a release. “Our unique blend of talent, incisive analysis, and one-of-a-kind highlights from NFL Films give Inside The NFL an edge that viewers simply cannot get with any other NFL news program.”
Schein currently hosts three shows on CBS Sports Network: the newly launched one-hour live weekday sports show Time To Schein, That Other Pregame Show and NFL Monday QB. He also hosts a daily sports-talk radio show on Sirius XM’s Mad Dog Radio and previously appeared on SNY’s Loudmouths and Fox Sports radio’s Game Time React with Adam Schein.
