Mike Florio, who created the innovative, NFL-focused web destination and initially partnered with in 2009, will extend the PFT brand to another NBC Sports Group platform when he hosts a daily weekday television program on NBC Sports Network beginning Tuesday, Sept. 4. The one-hour Pro Football Talk will air at 5 p.m. ET, every Monday through Friday, and will be co-hosted by Erik Kuselias, the host of NBC SportsTalk.

Pro Football Talk will feature concentrated NFL insight from Florio, who the New York Times said is "a leading source of information." Florio and Kuselias will regularly welcome a roster of NBC Sports football commentators, including Rodney Harrison, Hines Ward, Doug Flutie, Ross Tucker, Amani Toomer, and Peter King, among others. In addition to deep diving on the most topical NFL stories of the day, Pro Football Talk will also touch on injuries, fantasy football and officiating.

"When we started the website, the goal was to create a place I'd want to visit as a football fan. That same objective applies to Pro Football Talk," said Florio. "We wanted to make a show that I would spend time watching if I wasn't involved in it. Of course, some may say they'd be more likely to watch this show if I actually wasn't involved in it." Soon after entering into a mutually beneficial partnership with in July 2009, Florio began contributing to NBC Sports' television coverage. In addition to Pro Football Talk, he can be found on Football Night in America, on the Sunday Night Football post-game show, breaking down the NFL's top stories of the day with Bob Costas, and on Notre Dame Football halftime segments.

"This was a natural decision for us since Mike is the consummate NFL insider and is familiar to our viewers from his work on Football Night in America, Sunday Night Football, NBC SportsTalk, Notre Dame halftime segments, as well as his ultra-popular website," said Jon Miller, President, Programming, NBC Sports & NBC Sports Network. "We look forward to him bringing his wealth of NFL information to NBC Sports Network viewers every weekday."
