NBC Sports have announced that former Everton and Manchester United goalkeeper Tim Howard will serve as a studio analyst across their Premier League coverage for the 2020/21 season.
After making his broadcast debut with NBC Sports nearly seven years ago, Howard returns as a full-time member of the broadcasting team, joining host Rebecca Lowe and fellow analysts Robbie Earle and Robbie Mustoe.
“I’m excited to re-join NBC Sports, where I got my start in broadcasting,” Howard said. “After playing for 13 years in the Premier League, and watching regularly since, I can’t wait to get into the studio to provide analysis on the League with Rebecca and the Robbies.”
