Amazon taps Hannah Storm, Andrea Kremer for NFL’s first all-female broadcast duo

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer will form the first all-female broadcast team to call an NFL game starting this Thursday night.

The two veteran sportscasters will work the 11 Thursday night football games on Amazon Prime Video, the company announced Tuesday. Amazon’s schedule begins this week in Los Angeles as the Rams take on the Minnesota Vikings.

“NFL fans will hear history made this season-- bringing two female announcers together to call an entire NFL game has never been done before,” Prime Video VP Greg Hart 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.”

NFL fans know Kremer from her current gig as chief correspondent for NFL Network and her previous work on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.” Storm’s long career has included stops at NBC, CNN and ESPN, where she is currently an anchor on “SportsCenter.”

While women have worked NFL games or many years, their presence has grown beyond that of sideline reporter in recent years. Beth Mowins became just the second woman in history to do play-by-play on a NFL game in 2017, while Sam Ponder and Suzy Kolber currently host ESPN’s main NFL shows.
