FOX tabs replacements for Joe Buck, Troy Aikman as No. 1 NFL broadcast team

FOX has found their new No. 1 NFL broadcast team, replacing Joe Buck and Troy Aikman with Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen.

The faces you see and voices you hear on big-time NFL broadcasts will be slightly different this year.

Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have left the NFL on FOX broadcast to call Monday Night Football on ESPN. Now we know who will replace them.

On Tuesday, FOX announced a new No. 1 broadcast team including Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen.

FOX has a new No. 1 broadcasting team for NFL games

Burkhardt will take over for Buck as the lead play-by-play announcer. Olsen will step in for Aikman as the lead analyst. They were FOX’s No. 2 broadcast team for NFL games last year.

Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi will be on the sidelines as reporters.

The new team will debut on Sunday, Sept. 11 as the Vikings take on the Packers in the game of the week.

Olsen, who is in his second year broadcasting with FOX, may just be holding a spot for Tom Brady when he decides to retire. The broadcaster has reportedly promised Brady the lead analyst spot with a 10-year deal worth $375 million.

Brady retired earlier this year only to unretire at 44 years old. He’ll be 45 before the season starts. If he hangs up his cleats after the 2022 season, he’ll likely push Olsen back down to the No. 2 team. Whether or not Burkhardt stays with the No. 1 team is uncertain.

The NFL regular season begins on Thursday, Sept. 8 with the Bills taking on the Rams in Los Angeles. That game will be on NBC.
