NFL Network has announced that they have a new host for its signature morning show, Good Morning Football. Jamie Erdahl, who is a very prominent name in sports hosting and sideline reporting for CBS Sports, will fill in the seat of former commentator Kay Adams, according to the New York Post. She also joins co-hosts Peter Schrager and Kyle Brandt on the show as well.
Erdahl has been with the CBS Network since 2014, where she was working on the SEC Game of the Week as well as on like sidelines during the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
Adams ended up leaving “Good Morning Football” this past May after being the host of the show since the start in 2016. There are rumors that Adams’ left Good Morning Football to work for Amazon’s Thursday Night Football. However, both Adams and Amazon haven’t said anything regarding the matter, and the hosting gig eventually went to Fox’s Charissa Thompson instead. There weren’t many names mentioned when it came to replacing Adams on GMFB. Therefore, it seemed logical for the company to pick Jamie.
Erdahl made headlines last year in her interview with Ole Miss Football head coach Lane Kiffin. Where Kiffin threw the headset that was on their head as Erdahl was asking a follow-up question.
Erdahl took to Instagram to talk about the incident, saying, “In the world of things I never thought I’d have to talk about, I’m here to talk about popcorn. Yeah, coach Kiffin reached out to apologize, but, as I said back to him, it didn’t bother me at all. I thought it was great TV. Clearly it was since we’re all still talking about it. It had nothing to do with me, that whole response to my question. People said that it was disrespectful to me, but I really did not take it that way. I just wish it had been a better day for Ole Miss football. But it’s not a thing. That’s my popcorn TED Talk.”
Erdahl can be seen hosting Good Morning Football on the CBS Sports app.
