The Pro Football HOF named ANDREA KREMER the latest recipient of the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award. She will be honored at the Aug. 3-4 enshrinement weekend in Canton. Kremer currently serves as NFL Network Chief Correspondent, while working on HBO's "REAL SPORTS" and CBS Sports Networks' "WE NEED TO TALK." She also teaches a course on "The Art Of The Interview" at Boston Univ. Kremer began covering the NFL in '84 with NFL Films, before joining ESPN in '89. She left ESPN in '06 to join NBC Sports, where she served as a sideline reporter for "SNF" for five years. She has covered more than 25 Super Bowls (Pro Football HOF). Kremer was featured last year in SBD's "Weekend Plans."

WELL DESERVED HONOR: The announcement was followed by effusive praise on Twitter. ESPN's Sage Steele tweeted Kremer "has always been the perfect example of professionalism (and bad-assery) for countless women AND men." Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman: "One of the best to ever do it and also one of the kindest and smartest people I’ve ever known." NFL Media's Jim Trotter: "One of the best to ever do it when it comes to reporting and storytelling." NBA.com's David Aldridge: "No one deserves this honor more." Fox Sports' Peter Schrager: "Love that she will be up there on stage with Randy Moss in his HOF year. Andrea was the only one Moss would open up to early on his career." NFL.com's Judy Battista: "What a year for the HOF." NBC Sports Exec Producer Fred Gaudelli, a longtime colleague of Kremer: "@Andrea_Kremer turned a little girl’s passion and dreams in to a ground breaking career as an NFL journalist. Glad to see her passion and work recognized." Kremer herself tweeted, "I am overwhelmed beyond words at the expressions of support and congratulations from so many people. Thanks to @tunasweasel @espn @SuzyKolber @AdamSchefter @TedyBruschiESPN for the incredible shoutout on NFL Live #PFHOF18"
