McNabb And Malone Get Afternoons At NBC Sports
Two former NFL quarterbacks are taking the afternoon drive slot (3 p.m.-7 p.m. ET) on the new NBC Sports Network when it launches April 1. Donovan McNabb and Mark Malone will host “Under Center with McNabb & Malone.” McNabb said, “I am very excited to expand my relationship with NBC Sports Radio. I am also excited to partner with Mark Malone as we look to create a dynamic afternoon drive show for listeners around the country."
As a player, Donovan McNabb posted one of the best records in the NFL, averaging 10 wins per season over his 13-year career. With McNabb under center, the Eagles went to the postseason eight times, won the NFC East Division five times, played in five NFC Championship Games, and had their first Super Bowl berth in 24 years. His 4,746 pass attempts, 2,801 completions, 32,873 passing yards, and 216 TD passes are franchise records. McNabb is also a former Syracuse University football standout and basketball player.
Malone is currently an analyst for Dial Global Sports' Sunday afternoon NFL package and host of NFL Insider. He was an All-American quarterback at Arizona State and first-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers, played for 10 years in the NFL, quarterbacking the Steelers to the 1984 AFC Championship Game. He is also known for the decade he spent with ESPN, where, in addition to hosting NFL programming, he also covered NASCAR, GOLF, the NHL, boxing, and the NBA.
