Tirico and Collinsworth have teamed to call 21 NFL games (19 regular season, two preseason) since Tirico joined NBC Sports in 2016. Stark, NBC Sports’ newest team member, served as sideline reporter for ABC’s “Monday Night Football” for three seasons from 2000-2002 and has been a host and reporter for NFL Network since 2011.
“Sunday Night Football is destination viewing and we are thrilled to have Mike, Cris and Melissa call the action and tell the stories that football fans have come to expect from primetime TV’s #1 show,” said Pete Bevacqua, NBC Sports chairman in a statement.
The trio will work its first game together at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in primetime on Aug. 4, 2022, on NBC and Peacock. On Sept. 8, Tirico, Collinsworth and Stark will call the “NFL Kickoff Game” on NBC and Peacock.
