Good Morning Football

Good Morning Football is a live NFL morning television program on NFL Network. The program premiered on Monday, August 1, 2016. It airs from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET.

On the weekday edition, co-hosting on the panel program are Nate Burleson, Kay Adams, Kyle Brandt and Peter Schrager.[1] Reggie Bush has served as a fill-in host for Burleson. On the weekend edition, co-hosting on the panel program are Colleen Wolfe, Mike Garafolo, Michael Robinson, Reggie Bush and Steve Smith Sr..

Production[edit]

Good Morning Football replaced earlier attempts by NFL Network at a morning television program, including NFL AM and NFL HQ. Unlike its predecessors, which were filmed in Los Angeles, the show is produced live on the east coast. The move was made, in part, because doing the show required the live broadcasts to begin at 4 a.m. Pacific Time. According to chief content officer of NFL Media Jordan Levin, "There’s an energy to morning programming. The challenge is compounded when you have people who are literally doing the show in the middle of the night." The weekday program first utilized the CBS Broadcast Center on West 57th Street as a condition of CBS holding the rights to Thursday Night Football.[2]

Good Morning Football is the first NFL Network program to originate in New York since the network's launch in 2003. Sony Pictures Television's Embassy Row handles production of the show, with CEO Michael Davies as the executive producer.[3]

In May 2018, the weekday program moved from the CBS Broadcast Center to The NFL Experience in Times Square; the move was planned before the acquisition of the TNF package by Fox, and is unrelated to the change. The new studio will "look out on the entire panorama of Times Square".[4] With the planned closure of the attraction,[5] the show moved to SportsNet New York's studios at 4 World Trade Center with a new set debuting November 5, 2018.[6] The weekend program is broadcast from NFL Films in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey[7].
