NFL Network said Wednesday it has signed Bryant Gumbel and Cris Collinsworth as announcers for its prime-time regular season game package that will begin Thanksgiving Day.

Mr. Collinsworth will also work games for NBC Sports, and will continue to appear on HBO, as will Mr. Gumbel.

“Bryant is a premier broadcaster with impeccable credentials and allows NFL Network to immediately distinguish its coverage,” said NFL Network President & CEO Steve Bornstein. “Cris has proven himself to be the top analyst in football, and his presence establishes instant credibility to our telecasts.”
