With COVID-19 restrictions in place in Western New York and a global pandemic, the Buffalo Bills’ radio broadcasts looked (sounded?) different in 2020. John Murphy called games — home and away — from the booth at Bills Stadium with a wide-angle TV view helping with road games. Color analyst Eric Wood was replaced by Steve Tasker, as well, since Tasker lives in Western New York and wouldn’t have to quarantine for two weeks before every game like Wood, who lives near Louisville.
The COVID restrictions have been loosened and Wood is set to rejoin the broadcasts this season. In addition to the personnel swap, the whole crew (including sideline reporter Sal Capaccio) will once again be on the road and traveling to the away games.
That being said, things could change if COVID shutdowns or restrictions begin popping up in away game cities or locally.
Tasker will continue co-hosting the team’s weekday radio/TV show One Bills Live with Murphy and hopefully starring in some more epic hype videos for the team.
