Reigning league MVP and three time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady will join the NFL on Westwood One for a weekly interview segment with Jim Gray.
The segment with the New England Patriots signal caller will be part of Westwood One’s weekly Monday Night Football pregame broadcasts, as well as Opening Night, Conference Championship Sunday and Super Bowl XLVI pregame broadcasts. This will be the first time Brady will be a weekly guest on the weekly national radio pregame show.
In addition, Arizona Cardinals’ wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald will also join Jim Gray for weekly interview segments during Westwood One NFL pregame broadcasts throughout the season. Westwood One’s Monday Night Football pregame show airs each week at 8:00 PM ET on radio stations nationwide and can also be heard on Sirius/XM satellite radio, online at NFL.com and on Verizon mobile devices. Replays of both interviews will be available weekly on westwoodonesports.com.
“We have the best quarterback and the best wide receiver in the NFL joining us now every week,” said Gray. “In fact, they could be the best two players in the league period and we will be the only ones to have them both on a regular basis. I am looking forward to a great season.”
