Albert to broadcast NFL for CBS

Marv Albert is returning to the National Football League, whenever the lockout ends. The longtime play-by-play announcer is joining the NFL on CBS team, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus announced Monday. Albert worked for NBC Sports from 1977-97 and announced the NFL on NBC for 19 years. Albert said he’s not sure who will be in the CBS booth with him. “That is still up for discussion,” said Albert, who plans to travel with his wife this week on the Orient Express. Albert will keep his lead role as basketball play-by-play announcer for TNT’s Thursday night NBA regular-season and playoff coverage. – Associated Press
