WRC sports director Dan Hellie is leaving the NBC owned station in Washington, D.C. to join the NFL Network. He will begin next month as the host of “NFL Total Access,” the network’s signature show.
“Coming from the D.C. market where he covered one of the league’s most storied franchises for a number of years, Dan brings a unique perspective along with his reporting skills and on-camera presence,” NFL Network executive producer Eric Weinberger said in a statement.
Hellie joined WRC in 2006. He has previously worked in Orlando, West Palm Beach and Florence, S.C.
“It’s been an unbelievable ride spending seven years in my hometown covering the teams I grew up rooting for,” Hellie said. “I never thought I was going to leave, but the opportunity to be a part of the NFL Network and be able to cover the NFL on a daily basis was impossible to pass up.”
