With less than two weeks to go until the USFL kicks off its inaugural season, broadcasting teams are starting to come together for both FOX and NBC. As it turns out, Curt Menefee and Joel Klatt will be reunited to call USFL games as a duo.
Fox Sports will use Curt Menefee and Joel Klatt will be Fox Sports’ top USFL announcing team this season. SBJ Media is live. https://t.co/QmNl7LR8UJ
Menefee and Klatt worked with each other during the XFL’s 2020 season, calling multiple games together. With that in mind, it is clear to see why FOX has decided to stick with the two moving forward into the USFL’s 2022 debut.
According to Rudy Martzke, Jac Collinsworth (Cris Collinsworth’s son), will lead play-by-play for NBC. While this has not been officially confirmed, it would not be surprising. Cris Collinsworth has plenty of connections with NBC, likely playing a role in his son’s growth into a broadcasting role.
NBC Sports will have Jac Collinsworth as its lead play by play voice for the much anticipated relaunch of the USFL.
While we wait for official announcements from both FOX and NBC on their respective broadcasting teams, it is exciting to see the league putting the final pieces together before April 16th. Buckle up, folks – it’s about to be a fun ride.
