NFL fans are going to get nostalgic soon with the return of NFL PrimesTime talk show. It’s still fresh in everyone’s mind when the show aired for two decades and then went off. NFL is celebrating it’s 100th anniversary this year and they are making it special in every way possible. Chris Berman and Tom Jackson are returning as the hosts of the show which made it so special in the first place.
NFL Primetime being back is so cool. As a young PA in my 1st year at ESPN in ‘03, I was promoted to do a highlight for Primetime. It was a BIG deal. I’ll never forget walking in that room to show my highlight to Boomer and TJ. Holy grail type stuff.
