Andrea Kremer and Hannah Storm are set to make history later this week, with Amazon Prime Video announcing Tuesday that the sports media veterans will become the first all-female NFL broadcast team for this week’s “Thursday Night Football” matchup.
Starting with this week’s Vikings-Rams clash, Kremer and Storm will call 11 Thursday games this season for Amazon. The Kremer-Storm team adds another option for Prime streamers — with the service already offering Fox’s Joe Buck and Troy Aikman broadcast, along with a Spanish-language and an often-candid British broadcast.
“NFL fans will hear history made this season – bringing two female announcers together to call an entire NFL game has never been done before,” Greg Hart, vice president of Prime Video, said in a statement. “Our customers around the world love to stream football – we are thrilled to have Andrea and Hannah bring their extensive knowledge of the game to fans on Prime Video.”
Kremer and Storm have certainly paid their dues. Kremer has earned multiple Emmys while covering the NFL for decades. She’s currently the chief correspondent for the NFL Network and contributes to “Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel” on HBO. Storm is an industry veteran, having covered the NBA for NBC and produced several projects for ESPN. She’s currently an anchor on “SportsCenter.”
“Teaming up with Hannah and Amazon for this is truly special,” Kremer said in a statement. “Hannah is a brilliant journalist and she has been a friend for many years. With decades of experience as storytellers, we will be bringing a different voice and viewpoint to covering the game of football.”
Amazon did not mention which reporter will handle play-by-play duties and which will handle analysis.
