Gus Johnson, Mauro Ranallo, Frank Shamrock, Stephen Quadros, and Pat Miletich make up the all-star announce team that will appear on Showtime during the upcoming Strikeforce events.
The announcement was made today by Ken Hershman, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Sports & Event Programming, SHOWTIME, at a Los Angeles press conference kicking off Showtime’s new relationship with MMA promoter Strikeforce.
The group will work in various combinations on both Strikeforce championship telecasts and on the yet to be named up-and-comers’ series.
“I am thrilled with the announce team we’ve assembled,” said Hershman. “The depth of talent, in terms of professional fight experience and live broadcast polish, is unmatched in the industry.
“As the first premium television network to regularly deliver live MMA events, SHOWTIME has taken the lead in presenting the sport with the respect and integrity it deserves. We take pride in delivering unparalleled coverage of this dynamic sport. And now, our broadcast team is unparalleled as well.”
