Estimated Reading Time: 3 Minutes

History will be made Thursday night when the Minnesota Vikings play the Los Angeles Rams. It won’t happen on the field, however. It’ll happen in the booth.

Earlier today, Adam Schefter reported that Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer will be the first all-female duo to call an NFL game. They will be calling Amazon Prime Video’s live streaming coverage of the game. This is the first of 11 Thursday night games the streaming service will carry this season. Storm and Kremer will be calling all of them.

Storm, an alum of Notre Dame, began her broadcasting career as a disc jockey for a hard rock radio station in Corpus Christi, Texas. She then became the first female host on CNN Sports Tonight from 1989 to 1992. In May 1992, she was hired by NBC, where she hosted for the Olympic Games, NBA and WNBA, NFL, and MLB. She also anchored NBC Sports Coverage of Wimbledon, French Open, Notre Dame football, World Figure Skating Championships, and the NBC SportsDesk. While at NBC, she became the first play-by-play announcer for the WNBA in 1997.

Storm left NBC in 2002, moving to CBS News to become one of the hosts of The Early Show. During her tenure there, she covered several major news events, which include the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina, and the 2008 presidential election. She also interviewed major politicians, entertainers, and sports figures.

In 2008, she moved to ESPN, where she anchored SportsCenter weekday mornings and became a host of ESPN’s coverage of major tennis tournaments with Mike Tirico and Chris Fowler. 

Kremer is a multi-Emmy Award Winning television sports journalist. After studying at the University of Pennsylvania, she became the first female producer for NFL Films, where she worked in the former HBO program Inside the NFL.

Like Storm, Kremer worked at ESPN. In 1989, she became the first female correspondent at ESPN and contributed to SportsCenter, Sunday NFL Countdown, Monday Night Countdown, and Outside the Lines. In 2006, she left ESPN to work the sidelines as a reporter for NBC Sunday Night Football. She also contributed pieces to the pregame show Football Night in America. While at NBC, she was a reporter for the network’s coverage of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Some of her best work has been as a correspondent for HBO’s Real Sports with Bryan Gumbel. She was a major contributor of the coverage of the 2016 investigation into sexual assault in Bikram Yoga.

Along with winning Two Emmys (2001, 2005), Kremer won a Peabody Award for her story in the abuse of Toradol, a popular drug used in the NFL. She was also recently presented with the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award by the Pro-Football Hall of Fame.

Storm and Kremer have decades of NFL, and in general, sports, experience combined. They are well-respected journalists and some of the best in their field. Not just among women, but among men as well. They are extremely qualified and deserving to call NFL games. Being friends for many years, they have a chemistry that many on-camera duos can never find, yet still are working on the major networks. I honestly believe between their credentials and familiarity with each other, they have the potential to be one of the best broadcast duos in the history of the game.

It’ll be exciting to see these two on Thursday on Amazon Prime. The NFL is extremely lucky to have Storm and Kremer call their games.
