NFL RedZone is a staple for any football fan come Sunday afternoon. The  “whip around” style simulcast covers all the major action points from all Sunday afternoon games, ensuring football fans don’t miss a beat.

RedZone is based out of the NFL Network studios and is hosted by Scott Hanson, who first presented the show back in 2009.

Thirteen years on and Hanson is still going strong with no signs of slowing down.

He recently signed a new contract

Back in 2021, Scott Hanson signed a new multi-year deal to continue hosting NFL RedZone. The Rochester, Michigan native wrote on Twitter at the time:

I’d like to thank @brianheffernanrolapp , Hans Schroeder, Mark Quenzel, Mike Muriano & especially Roger Goodell @nflcommish for believing in me & our entire #NFLRedZone Team. Can’t wait to watch @NFL football with you for *18 weeks* this year!’

At the time he revealed his two favorite weeks are Weeks 1 and 17.

“There are obviously awesome, jaw-dropping moments that happen hour-by-hour in the middle of the season, but when we kick off that first series of games after feeling the drought of our favorite sport, and nine games are all teed up and they kick off — I’m getting jacked up just thinking about it right now,” he said.
