Legendary English Premier League commentator Peter Drury is set to leave the Premiership for NBC Sports in the United States of America.
Peter Drury will be heading to America to replace Arlo White as the lead commentator for NBC’s coverage of the Premier League. He will begin commentating on Premier League games for NBC Sports as soon as the new season commences on August 6, 2022.
The poetic commentator is beloved by fans across the world with the way he delivers his commentaries. He has over the years established a sort of partnership with fellow commentator Jim Beglin, but will now be commenting on the premier league in the United States of America.
Social media have been buzzing non-stop, with most lamenting that the English Premier league won’t be the same without his poetic voice. In an interview with a Kenyan journalist, Drury stated that:
As a commentator, you must understand that the game is not about you but about the footballers. While I understand that people enjoy my commentaries, I’m sure that people will forget about me once the league resumes officially.
Peter Drury equally stated that he’s been commenting on sport since 1998 and also has other interests asides from football.
