MOON-LIGHTING: VIKINGS' QB TO PLAY ON BOTH SIDES OF MIKE
Published May 17, 1995
Vikings QB Warren Moon will pull double-duty this coming NFL season, working both on the field and as a member of the media. Moon, who also has worked this season on several TNT and TBS NBA broadcasts, will appear on TNT's NFL coverage in '95. The SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY spoke with Steve Rosner at Integrated Sports International -- Moon's marketing representatives -- about the QB's moonlighting. Rosner said Moon's involvement with TNT will include taped features and live spots during the network's coverage of the NFL, with other coverage based on Moon's availability. Rosner notes that Moon and other players have worked on local TV in their markets, "but to do something on a national level, but more importantly and more interestingly, with another sport -- I don't think that's been done before." Rosner reports that there have been "a lot of inquiries" about Moon's availability when he retires, and says, "There is no question that when Warren Moon retires from football, the broadcast industry is one he's going to take a shot at." As for the future, Rosner says that while Moon does not have a long term deal with TNT, the cable network "will be right in the mix for his services" when Moon moves on to his next full-time career (THE DAILY).
