In joining NBC, Berry will be used across the network in various roles.

The release said Berry will be on “Football Night in America” ​​on Sundays before the network’s “Sunday Night Football” broadcast each week. He will also be on “Sunday Night Football Final,” the network’s NFL post-game show carried exclusively on Peacock.

Berry will be starting his Sundays on Peacock and other NBC Sports digital platforms with a fantasy football and sports betting show that will run from 11 am to 1 pm ET.

But Berry’s work won’t just be limited to Sundays. He will also have a daily show on Peacock, which will also be carried on NBC Sports Audio on SiriusXM and on the NBC Sports Audio Podcast. He will also have content on the network’s YouTube page.

Berry will continue to write fantasy football rankings and other articles and he will be on the NBC Sports Predictor app.

Beyond football, NBC said Berry will provide analysis in other major NBC Sports events like the Kentucky Derby and Indy 500.

This is not Berry’s first time working under the NBC umbrella. He began his career writing fantasy football articles from 1999-2004 for Rotoworld, which is owned by the network. Berry called his return to NBC Sports a “full circle moment for me.”

“I’ve spent my entire life talking fantasy football to anyone that would listen. So when I was offered the chance to join the highest-rated studio show in all of sports, I couldn’t say yes fast enough,” Berry said in the release. “Please remind me of this quote the next time I realize millions of people just saw me get a prediction wrong. In the meantime, know that I am incredibly honored and humbled by the opportunity not just to join the FNIA family but also to help build something special on Peacock.”
