Noah Eagle set to call first NFL main broadcast for Fox
Famed announcer Ian Eagle‘s son Noah is selecting up increasingly distinguished assignments himself. The 25-year-old youthful Eagle has been doing play-by-play for a variety of years, together with calling a Syracuse street basketball recreation for native radio in 2018 whereas his father known as the sport for CBS, calling Los Angeles Clippers video games for radio since 2019, calling Nickelodeon alternate NFL broadcasts the final two seasons, calling school soccer for CBS final yr, and calling school soccer and basketball for Fox this yr. (He’s seen above calling a Washington–UCLA recreation for FS1 in February.) Now, as Andrew Marchand of The New York Put up reported Thursday, Eagle is about to name his first NFL on Fox recreation this weekend, broadcasting 49ers–Falcons:

The youthful Eagle (seen at proper together with his father once they have been can be working alongside Mark Schlereth and Kristina Pink there. That’s normally Adam Amin’s spot, however the NFL on Fox broadcaster lineup is a bit shuffled this week due to their Nationwide League Division Sequence protection. Amin is looking the Dodgers–Padres sequence (alongside AJ Pierzynski and Tom Verducci), and that sequence (at the moment tied at one recreation apiece) goes to at the least a fourth recreation, which is able to happen at 9:37 p.m. Jap Saturday.
Thus, it might have been awfully powerful to get Amin to Atlanta for a 1 p.m. ET kick the following day. And that’s earlier than any consideration of a potential Dodgers-Padres fifth recreation (which might be at 9:07 p.m. Sunday night if it’s wanted). It makes way more sense to herald a backup. And Eagle has been doing a stable job on school soccer for Fox (together with calling final evening’s Baylor–West Virginia recreation alongside Mark Helfrich), and has NFL expertise from these Nickelodeon video games, so he seems like an inexpensive decide right here. We’ll see how he does with a NFL foremost broadcast task.
This isn’t the one change on the NFL on Fox Sunday due to NLDS protection. Joe Davis is looking the Braves–Phillies NLDS for Fox (alongside John Smoltz and Ken Rosenthal), and that’s going to at the least a recreation 4 Saturday. Meaning Brandon Gaudin goes to tag in for Davis with Davis’ normal NFL broadcast workforce of Daryl Johnston and Pam Oliver. That workforce will name Bucs–Steelers Sunday at 1 p.m. ET. As per JP Kirby of 506 Sports activities, each of those video games are going to comparatively small areas of the nation, with Fox’s widest-distributed recreation being Jets–Packers (known as by Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen, Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi).[Andrew Marchand on Twitter]; photograph from Kirby Lee/USA In the present day Sports activities]
