What Happened To Al Michaels On Sunday Night Football?

So what happened to Al Michaels on Sunday Night Football? The television sportscaster will be replaced by Mike Tirico for four NFL games NBC will broadcast this season.  At 72-years-old, Michaels most likely wasn't interested in covering additional games this season.  NBC added five Thursday night games in February, leading to Michaels' schedule changes.


NBC acquired the games in a 10-game deal which also involves Twitter.  The social networking service will stream the 10 games broadcast by CBS and NBC.  It's great seeing traditional media and new media working together to provide an amazing experience.  No matter where you are, if you have your mobile device, you'll be able to enjoy live NFL football!
