Football fans at Fort Benning, Georgia, will have the chance to be a part of live NFL pregame broadcasts on Sunday from York Field, then stick around to watch the games on a jumbo screen.
Fox Sports NFL reporter Jay Glazer tops the list of personalities who’ll broadcast live from Benning as part of the network’s salute to veterans, with segments airing on the “Fox NFL Sunday” broadcast that begins at noon as well as “Fox NFL Kickoff,” which airs earlier on the Fox Sports 1 cable network.
Glazer’s no stranger to military outreach, having visited troops in Afghanistan, Qatar and South Korea under the Fox banner.
Previous media reports had indicated other members of the Fox pregame cast — which includes NFL Hall of Famers Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long and Michael Strahan — would make the trip. They’ll be broadcasting from their usual spot in Los Angeles.
The event includes a parachute demonstration, military vehicle display and kid-friendly activities, according to a post on Fort Benning’s Facebook page. It kicks off at 11 a.m.
The entire Fox NFL Sunday pregame crew visited Afghanistan in 2009 for a broadcast that aired shortly before Veterans Day. In 2000, the group broadcast live from the aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman, then on patrol in the Mediterranean Sea.
