CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus, in making the announcement, said: “Marv Albert is recognized throughout sports broadcasting as one of its true legends. Very few in the broadcasting industry can claim his combined accomplishments and remarkable longevity. We are extremely excited to add Marv to our ‘NFL on CBS’ team.”
