Current Music has made another touchdown! NBC Sports invited us to come up with a new theme and sonic package for the most watched regularly-scheduled studio show in sports and we tackled the competition.
Our music will brand the show for years, but the Kick Off is Sunday, Sept 11, 2016. The new themes, including the theme song, will be heard throughout the show. The Producers liked our submissions so much, they chose 3 different ones!
“Football Night in America” is Co-hosted by Bob Costas and Dan Patrick. Costas hosts the show on-site, from the weekly “Sunday Night Football” game location, and is joined by Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Hines Ward, the former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and Super Bowl MVP. Dan Patrick co-hosts Football Night from NBC’s Studio 8G at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Patrick is joined by Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy, two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, Peter King of Sports Illustrated, and Mike Florio of “Pro Football Talk” on NBC Sports Network and NBCSports.com. Kathryn Tappen, Alex Flanagan and Carolyn Manno serve as reporters.
The theme package is composed by Todd P. Andrew and produced by Current Music’s CCO, Christian Salyer.
“Football Night In America” airs before the NFL game at 4pm every Sunday, throughout the NFL season. Catch it on NBC.
