√ ‘TNF with Storm & Kremer’ will make two appearances this season as part of ‘Thursday Night Football’s’ suite of alternate stream programming
Prime Video announced “TNF with Storm & Kremer” – featuring Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer – will be among its featured alternate streams during the upcoming season of “Thursday Night Football.”
Storm and Kremer, who have worked together on Prime Video broadcasts over the past four seasons – and became the first and only all-woman broadcast booth in the NFL – will partner once again, but in an all-new capacity. Their 2022 alternate stream will differ from the duo’s previous work on Prime Video, as they will delve deeper into storytelling and take viewers inside the matchup and league from a whole new perspective. The stream will feature live interviews with players and league insiders, behind-the-scenes stories from their decades covering the league, and much more from their unique perspectives.
“TNF with Storm & Kremer” will make two appearances this coming season, with dates announced later.
“Fans have been delighted by the coverage provided by Hannah and Andrea the last several years on ‘Thursday Night Football,’ and we are thrilled they are back to offer a new option to delve more deeply into the individuals in and around the game,” said Marie Donoghue, VP, global sports video, Amazon.
Kremer said, “I’m incredibly proud of the path Hannah and I have paved in our four years broadcasting games for Prime Video. Providing fans with truly unique insights into the game has always been our focus, and I’m excited to contribute to a new stream that will highlight our interviewing prowess and extensive knowledge of the NFL.”
Storm said, “Great to be back, with a new twist, for our fifth consecutive season with Prime Video. Andrea and I look forward to continuing to make the most of being the first all-woman booth to call NFL games, and showcase our own unique approach and style. Now we get to do it with some of our best friends, and some of the best minds in the game!”
