Former Storrs Central contributor Dan Orlovsky has finally hit the big time after years of hard work, landing an analyst role on ESPN’s relaunching year-round weekly NFL news and information show, NFL Live.
Orlovsky will join new host Laura Rutledge and analysts Marcus Spears, Mina Kimes, and Keyshawn Johnson on the revamped broadcast, which will kick off in August. He will also continue to provide color commentary on one ESPN/ABC college football broadcast per week.
The former UConn star has had a broadcasting role on ESPN for years, leaving his role at NFL Network to join the worldwide leader as a college football analyst in 2018. Orlovsky started calling games as a color commentator in 2019, and has made appearances on the ESPN shows Get Up, First Take, and Sportscenter in addition to NFL Live.
