ABC will have a piece of the action during an upcoming NFL event, with a two-hour live broadcast from the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine set for Saturday, March 2, at 1 p.m. ET. The telecast will mark the first time the Combine is airing on broadcast television.

The ABC program comes in addition to the NFL Network and NFL.com live coverage of on-field drills at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. ABC plans to broadcast two hours of live on-site coverage during the quarterback and wide receiver drills.

The National Football League announced today that the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine will feature more coverage than ever before.

Trey Wingo will host ABC’s “NFL Live: NFL Scouting Combine” special with Mel Kiper Jr., Todd McShay, Louis Riddick, Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter.

Additionally, ESPN will host multiple editions of “NFL Live” from the Combine with hosts Wendi Nix and Suzy Kolber, beginning Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Later this spring, ESPN and ABC will televise all three days of the 2019 NFL Draft, April 25-27 in Nashville, Tenn. Both networks will air their own prime-time telecasts on Days 1 and 2. This year marks the first time that ABC will broadcast all three rounds of the NFL Draft.
