Is Jamie Erdahl still on GMFB?
Yes, Jamie Erdahl is still a host of NFL Network’s Good Morning Football, joining the Emmy Award-winning show in 2022. Jamie Erdahl has stepped in to replace Kay Adams as host on the NFL Network’s popular show Good Morning Football.
The 33-year-old sideline reporter for CBS joined NFL Media and made her debut on Monday, July 25. Prior to the NFL Network, Erdahl worked at CBS Sports, where she joined in 2014.
Since 2014, Erdahl has worked for CBS, most recently serving as a sideline reporter for the biggest college football game of the week. She recently made an appearance on CBS’s March Madness coverage.
Adams, who has been with the show since its debut in 2016, will be replaced by Erdahl. Adams left last month to pursue other opportunities, while Nate Burleson, another co-host, left for “CBS Mornings” last year.
Erdahl worked for CBS for eight years, first as a sideline reporter covering the NFL on CBS and, most recently, as the lead SEC reporter.
While working for CBS Sports, Erdahl also covered college basketball games during the regular season and the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Championship as a sideline reporter for the network.
She also worked as an analyst for a few women’s college basketball matches on the CBS Sports Network. In addition, Erdahl oversaw the network’s studio coverage of the NFL and college basketball.
She also played a significant role in the 2018 launch of CBS Sports HQ, serving as an anchor for the 24-hour sports news channel.
Jamie Erdahl’s Personal Relations and Controversies
Sam Buckman and she have been married since July 2017. They started dating in 2014, and a few years later, they were married.
For four years, Buckman was a kicker for the University of Michigan’s football team. But instead of playing professional football, he chose to become a sales and marketing representative.
His social media accounts are locked, so it appears that he keeps his professional and personal lives separate. Both of the couple’s children are daughters; Brooke, age three, and Avery, age one.
Early in November, Erdahl published information about player injuries that came from a phony Twitter account. Although embarrassing, at least she maintained her composure. With ESPN’s Jim Bowden, this was not the case.
He failed to properly credit the source and reported MLB trade news from a fictitious account. Bowden made a number of decisions after realizing his error, including deleting his Twitter avatar and restarting his account, according to Barry Petchesky of Deadspin.
