NBC Sports Group Welcomes Kyle Petty To NASCAR Broadcast Team

nbc-sports-groupPopular and Experienced NASCAR Analyst Joins Krista Voda on Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series Pre- and Post-race Coverage on NBC and NBCSN

STAMFORD, Conn. — December 4, 2014 — NBC Sports Group welcomes one of the most-liked personalities in motorsports to its multiplatform NASCAR coverage as Kyle Petty joins its upcoming race day broadcast team on NBC and NBCSN.  Petty will work alongside host Krista Voda as an analyst during pre- and post-race shows surrounding Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series race coverage, which launches this July. In addition, Petty will continue his role as a regular contributor to NASCAR AMERICA on NBCSN.  The announcement was made today by Sam Flood, Executive Producer, NBC Sports and NBCSN.

“Kyle Petty brings a lifetime of experience to our team that is unmatched,” said Flood. “As a driver, team owner, philanthropist, and multigenerational observer of the sport, he has seen it all, and has great perspectives across NASCAR’s full spectrum.”

“I learned the history of this sport from my grandfather, I saw the history made by my father, and I was a competitor to some of the greatest drivers in the history of NASCAR,” said Petty.  “I’m excited to be a part of NBC’s return to NASCAR.  During this past year as a guest analyst on NASCAR AMERICA, I saw firsthand the commitment, energy and excitement that this team has for the sport that I love.  I can’t wait for the fans to see the same.”

The appointment of Petty follows previous NBC Sports NASCAR on-air announcements for analysts Jeff Burton, Steve Letarte, race announcer Rick Allen, pre- and post-race host Krista Voda, and reporters Marty Snider, Kelli Stavast, Mike Massaro and Dave Burns.

Petty is as much a product of racing as he is of his famous forebears: his grandfather, Lee Petty, and his father, Richard Petty, also known as “the King.”  He grew up in Level Cross, N.C., and places like Daytona, Charlotte and Talladega. For more than three decades as a driver, owner and media commentator, Kyle Petty has earned a reputation as a classy competitor and one of the greatest philanthropists that NASCAR has ever known.

Inspired by the vision of his late son Adam, Kyle and the Petty family partnered with the NASCAR community and corporate sponsors to create Victory Junction, a camp where more than 20,000 children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses have found hope, laughter and relief. For more than 20 years, Petty has hosted hundreds of NASCAR fans, drivers and motorcycle enthusiasts on his annual Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America – raising more than $15 million for Victory Junction and children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses.

Over the course of a 30-year racing career, Petty amassed 173 Top-10 finishes. Throughout his racing years and since retirement in 2008, he has worked as an on-air commentator for several networks, including TNT, SPEED, ESPN, Turner, Fox Sports 1 and the Performance Racing Network.

On July 23, 2013, NASCAR and NBC Sports Group reached a comprehensive agreement that grants NBCUniversal exclusive rights to the final 20 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races, final 19 NASCAR XFINITY Series events, select NASCAR Regional & Touring Series events and other live content, beginning in 2015.

With this partnership, NBC’s 20 Sprint Cup race schedule includes a designation as the exclusive home to the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, when the elite national series races through its final 10 events of the season.  The Chase culminates with the season-ending championship event, which returns to network television in 2015 for the first time since 2009. Of NBC Sports Group’s 20 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events, seven will be carried on NBC annually, with 13 airing on NBCSN. Four of NBC Sports Group’s 19 NASCAR XFINITY Series races will air on NBC, with 15 airing on NBCSN.

NASCAR AMERICA premiered in February, following Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Daytona 500 victory and NBC Sports Group’s multi-platform coverage of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. The weekday 30-minute news and highlights program is hosted primarily by NASCAR on NBC lead race announcer Rick Allen and features regular appearances by NBC Sports NASCAR analysts Jeff Burton, Kyle Petty, reporters Marty Snider, Kelli Stavast, as well as guest analysts such as Bobby Labonte, Wally Dallenbach and Frank Stoddard.

NBC Sports And FOX Sports Join Forces To Unleash New Era In NASCAR Television

nbc-sports-groupfox-sports-logoNetwork Sports Marketing Teams Unite to Craft Co-Branded NASCAR Creative to Air on FOX, FOX Sports 1, NBC and NBCSN in Advance of 2015 Season

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — December 3, 2014 — On the heels of one of the most exciting NASCAR seasons in recent memory, the award-winning marketing teams at FOX Sports and NBC Sports have co-created an adrenaline-charged on-air promotion that is set to unfold on multiple network platforms. The announcement was made today as part of a panel featuring NBC Sports Group Chairman Mark Lazarus and FOX Sports President, COO and Executive Producer Eric Shanks at the 2014 Sports Business Journal Motorsports Marketing Forum in Las Vegas.

Overseen by NBC Sports Group’s CMO John Miller and Robert Gottlieb, EVP of Marketing, FOX Sports, the collaboration is designed to promote the 2015 season and further the momentum NASCAR has been enjoying since the thrilling conclusion of the 2014 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.  In February, the green flag waves over a new 10-year broadcasting partnership in which FOX Sports and FOX Sports 1 handle the Daytona 500 and first half of the Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series seasons, before turning over the keys to NBC and NBCSN for the seasons’ second half and the reinvigorated Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

“It’s no secret that we compete rather fiercely in most other areas of our business, but given all of the excitement surrounding the sport, we felt the time was right to come together and celebrate our new broadcast partnership,” said Miller. “Our collective competitive spirit yielded a piece that turned out extremely well, and we’re looking forward to future collaborations as we build on NASCAR’s momentum.”

“This approach simply makes sense,” Gottlieb added. “The new distribution of NASCAR programming across FOX and NBC lends itself to a co-branded effort. We’re excited to tell NASCAR Nation about how great the 2015 season is going to be. Having FOX carry the first half, and having NBC carry the second half, is a clean and simple schedule that lets fans know where to go each weekend to get the NASCAR action they love.”

“As we crown a first-time Champion and celebrate what has been an exciting year for NASCAR in 2014, it’s great to see that NBC and FOX have already created a spirit of collaboration and synergy that will propel the sport forward,” said Brent Dewar, NASCAR’s chief operating officer. “Two of the world’s largest media companies collaborating on NASCAR-themed creative months before a new season begins demonstrates the level of commitment the industry and our fans can expect from NASCAR and our television broadcast partners in 2015 and beyond.”

On July 23, 2013, NASCAR and NBC Sports Group reached a comprehensive agreement that grants NBCUniversal exclusive rights to the final 20 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races, final 19 NASCAR XFINITY Series events, select NASCAR Regional & Touring Series events and other live content beginning in 2015.

The NASCAR on FOX relationship opened with the 2001 Daytona 500, adding the full NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES schedule in 2003 and, as part of the most recent television agreement, additional NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES races and 14 NASCAR XFINITY SERIES events beginning in 2015. Over the years, FOX Sports has delivered a wide variety of NASCAR programming across the broadcast network and its cable television properties, recently making programming available online through FOX Sports GO, the app that provides live streaming video of FOX Sports content. Many of the NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES races, including the Daytona 500, also are available in Spanish through FOX Deportes.

In addition, Costas interviewed Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders, and Elliott spoke with Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Following are highlights from Football Night in America:

ON GIANTS

Patrick: “Time to start over in New York?”

Dungy: “It really is.”

Patrick: “Where do you start when you start over?”

Dungy: “I think that you start with the coach, and Tom Coughlin should not be fired. You don’t fire coaches that have won two Super Bowls, but he should step down. This is going to be a long-term rebuilding process.”

Harrison: “Last week I talked about the Giants needing to play four quarters. Tom Coughlin has been talking about that the entire year. Eli is still making rookie mistakes. They are 3-9 at this point. He is not going to get any better. And an older quarterback like Eli, that’s not very athletic, guess what, he gets less athletic the older he gets. It’s time to move in a different direction.”

ON CARDINALS

Dungy: “They’re not running the ball well enough now to make up for Drew Stanton’s erratic play…I said two weeks ago they were going to win the division easily. I’m not so sure now.”

PACKERS

Harrison: “Not a finesse team. They’re a very physical team.”

ON COLTS

Harrison: “Yes, they are flawed…Every week it seems like he’s (Andrew Luck) running for his life. He’s been so careless with the ball.”

Dungy: “I’d be more concerned with the defense, giving up these big-chunk plays, giving up almost 400 yards to Colt McCoy. You can’t do that in the playoffs.”

ON CHARGERS

Harrison: “They saved their season.”

Costas: “A huge win for the Chargers today.”

ON BENGALS

Dungy on AFC North: “They’re in control of this race.”

King on challenge late in the game: “I have never had in my life a coach say to me after a game, ‘I just lost my mind.’ But he did for a moment because he could not find an official to call the timeout on the sidelines. They have a challenge person upstairs, the Bengals do, who said ‘Challenge. 12 men on the field. There’s 12 men on the field.’ Because he couldn’t find the ref to signal a timeout, he just threw the challenge flag.”

Dungy: “They were very lucky today. They weren’t good, made a ton of mistakes, only Tampa made more.”

ON BROWNS

Patrick: “Do you start Johnny Manziel next week?”

Dungy: “I think you probably do.”

ON SAINTS

Dungy: “Huge win for the Saints.”

Harrison: “I think they’re going to win the division.”

Dungy on NFC South: “New Orleans is in the driver’s seat.”

ON RAVENS

Harrison: “Baltimore blew a perfect opportunity.”

ON TEXANS

Harrison on J.J. Watt’s performance: “This is why I think he’s the MVP of the league. I haven’t seen a dominant defensive player like this since Lawrence Taylor.”

ON PANTHERS

Dungy: “They’re not able to run the ball and Cam Newton is not mobile. So it’s all on the passing game and they’re just not a good enough passing team to make up for all those deficiencies.”

ON CHIEFS

Ward: “That’s been the biggest problem on the offensive side of the ball, the play at the wide receiver position, and that starts with Dwayne Bowe. He’s been the biggest disappointment on that offense because they’re paying him a lot of money to be mediocre right now. When you have a running back like Jamaal Charles, who’s going to have eight and nine guys in the box all the time, as a wide receiver you are going to have a lot of one-on-one matchups on the outside, and you have to win those. So in order for Kansas City to get to where they want to go and to the playoffs, Dwayne Bowe has to be more than just an average wide receiver. They need him to be a playmaker.”

ON PERSONAL CONDUCT POLICY

King: “I’m told that a week from Wednesday when the NFL owners next meet in Dallas, the owners are going to be presented with a plan that is going to be very close to the final plan just to get their input.”

Florio: “Before it got to that point, the NFL tried to work with the NFL Players Association to come up with some sort of agreed approach. The sticky point continues to be final say. The NFL wants to retain final say over NFL player discipline. It got so bad that during a recent meeting the NFLPA just got up and walked out.”

ON RAY RICE DECISION

Collinsworth: “First of all, I think the arbitrator was right. It was double jeopardy, and that was probably a pretty easy call for the arbitrator in that situation. The more interesting question now is what happens to Ray Rice? Will anyone want him? Probably next year he will get invited to some training camp if somebody is willing to live with the distraction. But I do still think that it’s possible that by the end of this year, if there is a desperate team in the fight to make the playoffs that loses a couple running backs, somebody could take that chance, even this year…I don’t think he is to the level that he is somebody you have to have on your team. It’s still a risk even just purely on football terms.”

King: “After the whole Ray Rice thing was adjourned on Friday, people started to speculate where Ray Rice is going to land. I believe nowhere this year. Teams mentioned today were the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints. I think there is very little chance that he ends up in New Orleans, and even less of a chance that he ends up in Indianapolis. My gut feeling is that he signs in 2015 with somewhere else.”

Patrick: “Tony, as a coach, what do you do? Do you pick up Ray Rice?”

Dungy: “I would under one condition. Ray Rice made a terrible mistake, but he paid the penalty from the League and from the legal system. I would have to talk to him and say, ‘Have you learned from this?’ (I’d) look in his eye and see if he has learned from his mistake. Then I’d be okay to sign him.”

Harrison: “I had the opportunity to talk to a bunch of players and they said he has suffered enough public embarrassment and humiliation. He’s still a very productive hard-working running back. I think the big question here is, if he comes back, will he be in football shape? How long will it take for him to get in football shape?”

Patrick: “You also have to weigh what he’s going to give you on the football field with what he’s going to bring with him off the field, and what are you saying to your fan base if you bring him in?”

Dungy: “You do have to weigh that, but you also have to weigh is he okay paying a penalty like everyone does and then moving on with his life?”

Harrison: “You talk about the Indianapolis Colts. You can’t tell me that he’s not a better back than Trent Richardson.”

Below are excerpts from Costas’ interview with Sanders, and Elliott’s interview with Smith.

EMMANUEL SANDERS WITH BOB COSTAS

Sanders on referring to the Broncos offense as ‘wide receiver heaven’: “Playing with Peyton Manning, you get an opportunity to sling the football around and catch a lot of balls. I’m having the best season of my career right now, and I’m having fun for the first time. I’m enjoying it, and that’s why I said it’s wide receiver heaven.”

Sanders on cultivating his relationship with Peyton Manning: “When I came to Denver, my first thing to do was earn Peyton’s trust. We stayed in a hotel during training camp, and I would be in his room going over signs and signals, just trying to gain that trust. Obviously it’s starting to pay off.”

Sanders on Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.’s catch last week on Sunday Night Football: “We had just finished our game, and my brother texted me that Odell Beckham had just made the sickest catch he’s ever seen. He usually sends those text messages a lot, so I said, ‘Ah, whatever, I don’t care what he’s saying.’ But then when I looked at the catch, I said, “Wow.’ For me, it’s the greatest catch I’ve ever seen. For him to be a rookie and make those kind of plays, he’s going to be a special player in this league.”

Sanders on lessons learned following loss in Super Bowl XLV with Pittsburgh Steelers: “I remember when I was a rookie in 2010 (with the Steelers) and we did lose (in the Super Bowl), I was walking around saying, ‘I want to go to the Super Bowl, hey guys, let’s go to the Super Bowl,’ instead of saying, ‘I want to win the Super Bowl.’ Now, my mindset has totally changed. We have the ability to win it all, but we have to go out and get it.”

ALEX SMITH WITH JOSH ELLIOTT

Smith on Chiefs S Eric Berry’s address to the team: “It was shocking. You can never expect to hear something like that from one of your teammates. He’s a really, really special person. From the day I got here, I’ve been so impressed with his maturity and his leadership for a young guy. The thing that came out of it, at least that day when he talked to us, was that you came away feeling better because of him, and how positive his attitude was. He was very honest. His first instinct was that he wanted to play, but he’s got a bigger fight on his hands…we’re surrounding him and supporting him, pushing him to go get right and take care of this, and we’ll be here when he gets back.”

NOTE: Last week, Berry was ruled out for the season after team doctors discovered a mass on the right side of his chest. Berry is undergoing tests to determine the nature of that mass.

Smith on his relationship with head coach Andy Reid: “It’s been awesome. Every single play on the practice field, he’s right behind me, so it’s instant feedback. ‘Are we on the same page? Are we thinking the same thing?’ That’s what I want so that when the play call comes in, we are on the same page. I know exactly what he’s thinking, why he’s calling the play, and I can go out there and execute.”

Smith on Peyton Manning’s prolific offensive statistics: “As a quarterback, you look at the level he’s playing at, and how long he’s been doing it, and you can’t help but respect that – I don’t know how you don’t. With that said, there are a lot of ways to score points. Certainly the numbers he puts up, you can’t help but respect that. But at the end of the day, I’m just trying to score more points than him, regardless of how many yards he throws for.

Smith on valuing his team’s winning percentage over his personal statistics: “The longer you play, the more you learn that. It’s easy when you’re younger to get caught up in some of that fantasy stuff, or your (quarterback) rating. When you get older, week-to-week, it’s about finding a way to get a win.”

FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA

mun2 To Bring The Tradition Of Thanksgiving NFL Football To Spanish-Language Homes Across America

NBCUNIVERSAL LOGOS -- Pictured: "mun2" Black Logo  -- (Photo by: mun2)La NFL en mun2 Continues its Inaugural Season with the Exclusive Spanish-language Telecast of the NFL’s Thanksgiving Night Game at 8 PM ET

LOS ANGELES – Nov. 25, 2014 - NBCUniversal’s Hispanic cable network mun2 is bringing the uniquely American tradition of Thanksgiving NFL football to the homes of Latinos across the U.S., with the exclusive Spanish-language broadcast of the NFL’s Thanksgiving night game this Thursday, Nov. 27. The highly anticipated contest is a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship Game between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers, won by the eventual Super Bowl-champion Seahawks, 23-17.

La NFL en mun2 pre-game show will begin live from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, at 8:00pm ET / 5:00pm PT. Bringing viewers all the action on the field throughout this NFC West divisional clash will be play-by-play announcer Rene Giraldo, along with color commentator Edgar Lopez and sideline reporter Veronica Contreras. In addition to live action reporting, mun2 will air several custom segments showcasing the two teams, the NFL and the Thanksgiving tradition in a relatable way to the Hispanic audience.

The Thanksgiving night game is the second of five La NFL en mun2 broadcasts this NFL season. mun2 kicked off its coverage in September, broadcasting the Hispanic Heritage Game on Sept. 28, during which the Dallas Cowboys defeated the New Orleans Saints, 38-17, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. After the Thanksgiving night game, the network will broadcast two ‘win-or-go-home’ NFL match-ups: a Wild Card Playoff on Jan. 3 or 4, 2015, and a Divisional Playoff game on Jan. 10 or 11, 2015. The season will culminate on Feb. 1, 2015 – the day mun2 rebrands to become NBC UNIVERSO – and airs the exclusive Spanish-language telecast of Super Bowl XLIX, from Glendale, Arizona.

PIERRE MCGUIRE INTERVIEWS RANGERS FORWARD MARTIN ST. LOUIS

NBC’s coverage will feature a sit-down interview with Pierre McGuire and Rangers forward Martin St. Louis. St. Louis discussed the joy he gets from seeing his three young boys play hockey, while finding the balance between being a star hockey player, a husband and a father.

Following are excerpts from McGuire’s conversation with St. Louis:

St. Louis on the joy of watching his boys play hockey: “I love playing hockey – I think I love watching my kids play hockey more than I love to play. It’s great when they score, and for them, that’s the reward. Knowing the game the way I know the game, it’s the little things they do on the ice that nobody sees…but I see it, and that’s what makes me proud of how they play the game.”

St. Louis comparing his nerves on the ice to his nerves watching his boys on the ice: “I’m probably more on the edge of my seat watching them play than when I play, because when I play, I have control. When they’re out there, sometimes they get in a vulnerable position, and I tell them, ‘If you stay down, you better be hurt.’”

St. Louis on taking his boys to practice during early mornings after Rangers’ night games: “My dad (would take me to practice) at 6 a.m., 7 a.m.…it’s just part of being a dad. That’s the time that you can’t get back.”

Last year, the Bruins won two of three meetings against the Penguins, including both matchups in Boston.
