After debuting in 2006, Thursday Night Football became a weekly fixture during the 2012 season but has switched networks throughout its run. For the first time, a digital streaming service has become the exclusive broadcaster of Thursday night games, with Prime Video agreeing to air live TNF games between the 2022 and 2033 seasons. However, due to Prime Video being a subscription service, fans will be able to watch their local market team on an over-the-air TV station.

The Thursday Night Football broadcast team will feature legendary iconic play-by-play announce Al Michaels calling the action on the field with Emmy-winning football analyst Kirk Herbstreit joining him as an analyst. Kaylee Hartung will join the duo as a sideline reporter.

Longtime NFL correspondent Charissa Thompson will host the pregame, postgame, and halftime show. Thompson will be joined by Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez and future Hall of Fame cornerback Richard Sherman, who will serve as analysts. Other on-air talents joining the broadcast:

  • Andrew Whitworth (Analyst, Former NFL OL)
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick (Analyst, Former NFL QB)
  • Taylor Rooks (Feature Reporter)
  • Michael Smith (News Analyst)
  • Dude Perfect (Host of a TBD alternate broadcast)
