Former Bills offensive tackle John Fina, one of the team's more quotable players during his tenure, is going to give the other side of the microphone a try. He is joining 15 other former NFL players at the league's fifth annual Broadcast Boot Camp from June 20-23 at the NFL Films headquarters in Mt. Laurel, N.J.
The camp teaches ex-players all aspects of the television and radio broadcasting industry. They will get work in tape study, editing, show preparation, radio production, field reporting, game preparation as well as get experience as studio and game analysts. They also will serve as live radio host on SiriusXM NFL Radio.
The instructors come from the NFL’s broadcast partners – CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, NFL Network, SiriusXM Radio and Westwood One Radio. Among the TV talent working with the players include James Brown (CBS, Showtime), Ron Jaworski (ESPN) and Mike Mayock (NFL Network).
Other former Bills scheduled to attend the boot camp are safeties Nick Ferguson and Dustin Fox.
Of the 90 players that have participated in the boot camps, 36 have landed broadcasting jobs after their careers were over.
