NFL Network will debut a new live, four-hour morning program on July 30, just as team training camps open.
NFL AM will run from 6 a.m.-10 a.m. (ET), and will feature coverage of NFL topics as each teams gears up for the 2012 season. The show will collaborate with NFL.com to also feature fantasy football news. NFL AM's roster includes Fox Sports' Mark Kriegel, Fox Sports Digital's Brian Webber, Comcast SportsNet New England's Nicole Zaloumis, NFL Media's Steve Wyche and former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Eric Davis.
Starting Sept. 3, a West Coast encore will begin airing at 7 a.m. (PT).
"NFL AM will give fans a great reason to look forward to the morning," said Mark Quenzel, NFL Network senior vice president of programming and production, in a statement. "We know that our fans are looking for more football and we are excited to provide a personality-driven show which focuses on football and everything around it. There will be no better way to start their day."
NFL AM will also be streamed live on "NFL Mobile only from Verizon" and will feature additional programming, including fantasy info and lifestyle content on NFL.com and NFL digital platforms.
