Warren Sharp and SportsGrid have entered a multi-year agreement that will see Sharp join the network as a lead pro football analyst. He's expected to provide reports across SportsGrid's weekday and weekend live programming.
Operating out of Bell Works in Holmdel, NJ, SportsGrid's audience has more than doubled to 496,000 average daily impressions on CTV and OTT platforms over the last quarter.
Sharp's reports will include commentary, breaking news, and game-specific odds and lines opportunities, bringing sports betting aspects to the company's community.
After working with NBC Sports, Sharp will also provide insights analysis of SportsGrid's content and social media.
The Sharp reports are expected to cover the NFL regular season and playoffs. These reports will appear on Ferrall Coast to Coast, Pro Football Today, and In-Game Live All Access.
He headlines a roster of analysts including Scott Ferrall, Craig Mish, Gabe Morency, Ben Stevens, Kevin Walsh and Andrew Andersson among others.
SportsGrid Chief Operating Officer Adam Kaplan commented: "We are elated to welcome Warren Sharp to the SportsGrid team just in time for the start of the NFL season.
"Warren's well-known insights and deep analysis of the NFL teams, players, and betting markets have developed his reputation as one of the foremost experts in the sports betting industry. We are extremely pleased and excited to add him to our NFL coverage for multiple years."
Along with hosting and networking, Sharp will contribute to SportsGrid's new app launch and amplify content on social media by providing picks and posting betting-related video content on the company's social media channels.
Sharp added: "When I look at the future of sports gambling coverage, I see SportsGrid as an outstanding place to reach the fans who want the NFL insight I provide on a regular basis.
"SportsGrid's content strategy gives me the freedom to provide that information with the personality and style that I believe resonates with NFL fans and particularly NFL fans who gamble. I'd like to thank Adam Kaplan and the rest of the team at SportsGrid for giving me that opportunity."
