For approximately 24 hours following each game, NBCSBA’s Giants telecasts will be available on XFINITY On Demand

* Say Hey Tuesday from Oracle Park

 

Giants Pregame Live, Giants Postgame Live:  One hour prior to the game, fans can catch the latest team developments, interviews with players and coaches and in-depth game previews on Giants Pregame Live. Immediately following the game, Giants Postgame Live will give viewers an hour-long game breakdown with stats and highlights, clubhouse interviews and a preview of the next game. 

 

The shows, featuring a three-person broadcast team, are hosted by new anchor Kelli Johnson, along with two analysts from a rotation of former Giants: Rich Aurilia (@RichAurilia35), Shawn Estes, Tim Flannery (@TimFlannery2), Bill Laskey (@laskey19) and Randy Winn.

 

Johnson, a four-time Emmy Award-winner, joined NBC Sports Bay Area and NBC Sports California (formerly CSN Bay Area and CSN California) in 2014, and has served as a host and reporter for the networks’ various Giants, Oakland A’s, Golden State Warriors, San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders studio shows.  Additionally, Johnson was an anchor on SportsNet Central and a co-host on The Happy Hour.

 

Previously, Johnson was an anchor and reporter for CSN Houston covering the Houston Astros and Houston Rockets and hosted the inaugural season of 3 & Out, a half-hour football analysis and debate program which aired across NBC Sports Regional Networks.  Before Houston, Johnson was CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Washington Redskins beat reporter, where she provided daily coverage of the team and contributed to the network’s Redskins pregame and postgame shows, Redskins Kickoff and Redskins Postgame Live.  She also covered the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals as a beat reporter for CSN Mid-Atlantic. 

 

A native of Moscow, Idaho, Johnson is a graduate of the University of Idaho with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.  She was a four-year starter on the women's basketball team.  As a junior, Johnson set the school’s record for the most 3-pointers in a game (seven).  That season, she also broke Idaho’s school record for career 3-pointers.  By the end of her senior year, Johnson made 207 career 3-pointers.  These records stood for 19 and 17 years, respectively.  Johnson joined her father, Gary Johnson (a member of the 1966 Vandals Hall of Fame baseball team), in the Idaho Vandals Hall of Fame in 2016.
