Broncos star Von Miller will contribute to NBC’s Kentucky Derby coverage
Von Miller is one of the best defensive players in the league, but the Denver Broncos linebacker will try his hand at something new on Saturday, contributing to NBC’s Kentucky Derby coverage. According to ProFootballTalk, Miller will be on site serving as a lifestyle correspondent.
Miller said that he has been a lifelong fan of the Kentucky Derby and is excited to give his insights on the fashion surrounding the historic day:
“As a fan of the Kentucky Derby, I am thrilled to be a part of NBC Sports’ coverage of this historic sporting event,” Miller said in a release. “I look forward to showcasing the excitement, fashion and enthusiasm at Churchill Downs.”
NBC also said they are excited for Miller to give his perspective on all things surrounding the derby:
“Von will offer a fresh perspective on many of the unique lifestyle elements surrounding the Derby, including style, fashion, and popular social media trends,” said NBC Sports Group’s Rob Hyland, who serves as Coordinator Producer for the Triple Crown horse racing coverage on NBC.
This isn’t the first time Miller has done TV. He also helped contribute to the pregame coverage for the Super Bowl.
Miller has always been involved with fashion, and maybe this TV thing could work as a job for him to transition to after he retires. Miller is only 30 years old and still has some good years left in the NFL, but once he is done, look for him on a TV near you.
