Nothing beats waking up with a hot cup of coffee and your favorite television show! If you’re a Sunday football fan, you know the fear of waking up on Monday morning with no new games until the weekend.
However, you may not know about the show “Good Morning Football” which allows you to watch football highlights and news with your morning coffee, even on weekdays. Currently, you can stream “Good Morning Football” on NFL Network Live or on ESPN for full coverage of all things football.
About “Good Morning Football”
“Good Morning Football” is a live coverage morning program from the NFL Network, originally airing on August 1st, 2016. After little success with the “NFL HQ” and “NFL AM” morning show, the NFL Network created “Good Morning Football” to give sports fans a way to catch up on game highlights, recaps, and football news without watching the Sunday night games live. The show covers all things football from rankings, NFL Drafts, Super Bowls, and playoff games, as well as general NFL history.
The show has nine hosts and analysts that each tackle a different branch of the show. Currently, the weekday hosts are Kyle Brandt and Peter Schrager, with Colleen Wolfe covering weekends. The show also features five analysts: Reggie Bush, Cris Carter, DeAngelo Hall, Steve Smith Sr., and Michael Robinson. The show also features Mike Garafolo for inside expertise. While the show initially began its filming in Los Angeles using the CBS studio, the chief content officer decided the 4:00 am start time was too early for good ratings. It is now shot at both the SportsNet New York City studio and the sister studio in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey.
When is “Good Morning Football” Live on TV?
While the show was originally set to only stream twice a week, you can now watch the show every day of the week including weekends! Currently, the show is aired live every weekday morning from 7:00 am to 10:00 am EST. For weekend coverage, you can tune in at 9:00 am EST. Most cable TV providers also re-air the daily episodes at 10:00 am EST on weekdays.
If you miss it on TV, you can also now catch your favorite football news and hosts on the new “Good Morning Football Podcast.” While the “Good Morning Football Podcast” does recap much of the television show, as well as all coverage for the yearly NFL drafts, NFL matchups, and Super Bowls, it also contains new features, topics, and exclusive interviews with famous football players, analysts, and head coaches.
You can stream this podcast on a variety of platforms, including iHeartRadio, Apple Podcasts, and Spotify. The podcast is currently hosted by Will Selva, who has been covering NFL football for the last ten years. It also features special guests like Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks.
Is “Good Morning Football” Still On During the Offseason?
If you still want to watch football news during the nine-week NFL offseason, “Good Morning Football” is for you. You can watch the show all year long, at the same times as on-season, 7:00 am EST on weekdays and 9:00 am EST on weekends.
