The tech giant has hired Andrea Kremer and Hannah Storm to commentate all 11 of its Thursday Night Football streams on Prime Video this season, starting with the Rams vs. Vikings game this week.

Now, it appears that Kremer and Storm will be making a bit of history as they will become the first all-female National Football League broadcasting team. Storm was named one of AdWeek's "30 Most Powerful Women in Sports" and created Brainstorming Productions in 2008, where she has produced, executive produced and directed major projects for ESPN, espnW, SEC Network and EPIX, receiving multiple Grace Awards and New York Festivals TV and Film Awards. "With decades of experience as storytellers, we will be bringing a different voice and viewpoint to covering the game of football".

Amazon will have Storm and Kremer call all 11 "Thursday Night Football" matchups this season.

The Storm-Kremer broadcast will be one of four audio streams available to Amazon Prime Video viewers on Thursday night games. Kremer is a chief correspondent for NFL Network who was recently honored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a recipient of the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award.

Kremer, a multi-time Emmy Award victor, is now an NFL Network Chief Correspondent and a correspondent for HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel". Storm was the first female host of CNN Sports Tonight. Together we're looking forward to offering a new option for Prime members on Thursday nights and I'm excited to get to work!'

The regular Fox broadcast with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman calling the game will still be an option, but Prime Video customers can also opt to go with Kremer and Storm, a team of Spanish-language announcers, or an English-language broadcast team from the UK. Storm is a long-time ESPN SportsCenter anchor who has almost three decades of sports broadcasting experience. A lifelong friend with Pro Football Hall of Fame credentials, she is the flawless partner.
