Media > “YES!!!” … Marv Albert To Call NFL Games For CBS Sports

~ When Gus Johnson moved over to FOX, it left a void at CBS. They not only filled the void, they filled it with a Hall of Fame voice. Marv Albert will be doing play by play for CBS  NFL coverage.

 If CBS was looking at resume’s, it does not get much better than the one Albert posesses.  He did NFL games on NBC for 19 years,  he has been handling the play-by-play for Monday Night Football on Westwood One radio, and he handles play by play for TNT’s NBA coverage.

 

Albert is also handling college basketball play by play duties for CBS, so this move made a great deal of sense once Johnson left for FOX. It’s a great Public Relations move for CBS to secure Albert for this assignment. The stock of Gus Johnson has gone up big time the last couple of years and CBS needed to counter his departure with a big time replacement. Who bigger than the Marvelous one?
