SKY SPORTS - Neil Renolds
"I have the good fortune of covering Nick Fergsuon in two professional leagues and more recently worked with him on British Television's coverage of the NFL. During my time working with Nick on Sky Sports, I found him to be and insightful, articulate and entertaining guest and I would recommend him to any broadcaster. When hosting on Sky Sports Show from the Super Bowl Media Center recently, Nick was at the top of my guest list because he always offers analysis in a fun and bery insightful way. He is a pleasure to work with and I hope we work together on many projects in the future."
CBS 4 - Steve Cox
As the Sports Producer at KCNC-TV since 1999, I had the pleasure of covering Nick during his time with the Denver Broncos. The athlete-media relationship can often be testy and awkward, but Nick was a true professional when dealing with reporters. It’s no wonder now that Nick has moved to the other side of that relationship that he maintains that professionalism.
As he was as a player, Nick is one of the most prepared on-air analysts I’ve had the opportunity to work with. Too often, former players simply show up believing they can wing it with the subject matter because of their own experience. Nick makes certain to know the subject matter. He studies the current events like he’s breaking down tape for a Sunday game.
Of course, being prepared is only the first step to becoming a terrific on-air analyst. That preparation is useless unless the person can deliver it in a meaningful, cohesive and substantive style. Here again, Nick knocks it out of the park. As a player, he was what we called a “great soundbite”. As an analyst, he’s stepped up his game. If you want a former player who can go beyond just the X’s and O’s with personality, perspective and a terrific story-telling ability, Nick Ferguson should be on your radar.
