When NBC’s Sunday Night Football returns, former Monday Night Football sideline reporter Michele Tafoya will be joining the operation as a sideline and feature reporter. NBC Sports Group announced the move today.
“Michele is a versatile and experienced reporter who is well versed in the ways of the National Football League,” said Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli in a release. Gaudelli, Al Michaels, and director Drew Esocoff worked with Tafoya on Monday Night Football in 2004 and 2005 at ABC. “I can speak for Al and Drew when I say that we’re all thrilled to be working with Michele once again.”
“This is a wonderful opportunity to work with a group for which I have great respect and admiration,” Tafoya said. “I have many friends on this crew and I know how high they set the bar.”
