NASHVILLE, TN - Nashville SC announced their Television broadcast team on Tuesday. Tony Husband will serve as the play-by-play announcer, with Jamie Watson and Lori Lindsey serving as the color and sideline analysts, respectively.
Tony Husband spent two decades with the BBC, covering the Olympics, the FA Cup final, and the UEFA Champions League, as well as non-soccer events such as the World Athletic Series and Wimbledon. Husband has appeared on BBC's Math Of The Day since 2013, and has also covered the NFL and MLB on BBC radio.
Jamie Watson joined Nashville's TV crew in February, coming from Minnesota United, where he provided color analysis since 2017. Watson played professionally for 12 seasons, including stints with Real Salt Lake, FC Dallas, Orlando City and Minnesota United. The former winger is on of few players to have scored in all four divisions of the US Soccer pyramid (MLS, NASL, USL and PDL). Since transitioning to a broadcast career, Watson has covered MLS, International Champions Cup and the USL Championship. He was also a member of ESPN's broadcast team for the 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs.
Lori Lindsey joins Nashville's broadcast team after a 13 year professional career. She represented the United States 31 times at the international level, including playing in the 2011 Women's World Cup. She is one of only four players to have appeared in all three women's professional leagues in the U.S., as well as spending time professionally in Australia with Canberra United. Since retiring, she has worked as an analyst for the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) and ESPN.
Nashville SC did not provide details on their local television partner in the release. That information has yet to be released, and with the future of the 2020 season in flux, it likely will not be made public until plans for the remainder of the season have been finalized.
Nashville previously announced their radio partner in ESPN 94.9 The Game 2, with John Freeman, Wes Bolling and Kelly Glendening as the club's radio voices.
