TV producer Gaudelli to do final NFL game after 33 seasons

Fred Gaudelli has been in the producer’s chair for an NFL prime-time package for 33 seasons. That ends Saturday night when Gaudelli produces his last NFL game. He’ll produce NBC’s coverage of the AFC wild-card round game between the Los Angeles Chargers and Jacksonville Jaguars. The league’s 11-year deals with NBC, CBS, Fox and ESPN start next season. Gaudelli began producing NFL games in 1990 and worked on ESPN, ABC, NBC and Amazon Prime broadcasts. Gaudelli has worked with only three play-by-play announcers and five analysts. He started with Mike Patrick at ESPN but since 2001 his announcer has mainly been Michaels.
