By Cam Martin 

The top performer in this year’s NFL Broadcast Boot Camp will serve as a studio analyst for a 2011 NFL game on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom.

Based in London, Sky Sports airs 1:00 PM ET and 4:15 PM ET games live every Sunday, as well as all Thursday and Saturday night games and all postseason games including the Super Bowl.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to a member of the NFL Broadcast Boot Camp,” said Sky Sports NFL producer Karl Baumann. “It is a chance for us to introduce a new analyst to our U.K. audience and to benefit from their insight and expertise. We have been lucky to work with some outstanding NFL broadcasters and experts over the years and we are excited to see who will be joining us later this season.”

The broadcast boot camp runs from Monday through June 23 in Mount Laurel, N.J., and includes hands-on work in areas such as tape study, editing, show preparation, radio production, control room operation, studio preparation, production meetings, field reporting and game preparation. Each player will tape segments as a studio and game analyst and take part in a networking session with television executives. Each player also will serve as a live radio host on SiriusXM NFL Radio. Amani Toomer, Antonio Freeman and Drew Henson are among 16 former NFL players scheduled to participate.
