NBC Sports RadioDial Global and the NBC Sports Group say basketball veteran Stan Van Gundy is the latest to join NBC Sports Radio as a Senior Analyst for the NBA. Van Gundy  will call into network shows each week during the NBA season. The former head coach of The Orlando Magic will talk exclusively (they have exclusive national radio rights) to NBC Sports Radio affiliates and co-host for an hour every Friday during the NBA season, on a show soon to be announced.

Van Gundy joins a roster of veteran personalities live on NBC Sports Radio, which debuted in September.

“I’m thrilled to be joining NBC Sports Radio,” said Van Gundy. “I’m ready to get going and bring my opinions and insight to the national radio audience.”

“Having Stan join NBC Sports Radio is another special day for the network, and it shows the type of exceptional and unique talent and voices that we’re building for our affiliates and advertisers,” said Chris Corcoran, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Dial Global.

Van Gundy has also signed on with the NBC Sports Network to make his debut as a national television analyst during the inaugural Navy-Marine Corps Classic, featuring Georgetown vs. No. 10 Florida, on Friday, 11/9. The game will be played on the deck of the USS Bataan, at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville.
