Keyshawn Johnson reportedly in the mix for new broadcasting role
A former USC standout and NFL veteran could be joining FS1 as an analyst for the 2023 NFL season.
Keyshawn Johnson will be one of several new regulars on FS1 throughout the course of the NFL season, Sports Business Journal reported. Johnson has spent much of his media career at ESPN, but left the network in June.
Johnson will join the network along side former NFL star cornerback Richard Sherman. There is also a chance former wide receiver and long-time analyst Michael Irvin will join the network too.
Johnson spent 2 seasons at USC, where he led the Trojans to Cotton Bowl and Rose Bowl wins. He spent 11 years in the NFL, retiring in 2006.
The year after his retirement from the NFL, Johnson joined ESPN as an analyst for the NFL Draft and went on to spend over a decade with the network in several capacities.
He most recently contributed to the weekly studio show “NFL Live.” His previous roles at ESPN included appearances on “Sunday NFL Countdown” and “Monday Night Countdown” shows from 2007-15.
Johnson was also an ESPN Radio host, as he was most recently on the morning drive-time show.
