'One Bills Live' will air from noon to 3 p.m. weekdays on WGR 550, MSG Networks and MSG Go app
Pegula Sports and Entertainment Executive Vice President of Media and Content Mark Preisler on Wednesday announced Steve Tasker will join John Murphy as co-host of "One Bills Live," presented by Kaleida Health. The re-branded show will build upon the popularity of "The John Murphy Show," and keep the same timeslot: weekdays from noon to 3 p.m. on WGR Sports Radio 550, MSG Networks and the MSG Go app.
In addition to co-hosting the show year-round, Tasker will continue his national broadcasting work with CBS and will also continue to provide color commentary on Buffalo Bills preseason television broadcasts.
"Steve is the perfect fit," Preisler said. "He's a Bills legend. He's heavily connected to the NFL and its storylines through his work with CBS. He relates to our players and coaching staff, and he's embedded in the Western New York community. He will no doubt provide our fans with great insight."
Tasker spent 13 seasons in the NFL, including 12 with the Bills, and represented the franchise in the Pro Bowl seven times. Tasker was the first special teams player in the NFL to be selected to seven Pro Bowls and was named the game's MVP in 1993. A standout on kick and punt coverage units, he had 204 career special teams tackles and seven blocked punts.
Following his retirement at the end of the 1997 season, Tasker began a career in broadcasting as a game analyst for CBS, a role he continues to hold today. He has remained involved in the Western New York community and was inducted into the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame in 2001. Tasker was also honored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000, named to its All-Time Team, and was honored with selection onto the Buffalo Bills Wall of Fame in 2007.
"The Buffalo Bills have been a tremendous part of my life and I am very eager to begin this opportunity," Tasker said. "This is an exciting time in franchise history and I am thrilled to get involved on a daily basis. I look forward to working with Murph to connect with Bills fans who have been so supportive of me for a long time."
"One Bills Live" will debut on Monday, April 23.
