    BONUS: With Schedule Release Nearing, NFL VP of Broadcasting Mike North Touches On All Things Scheduling | 'It's Always Gameday In Buffalo'

    The 2024-25 NFL schedule is likely to be released during the second week of May. Audacy Original podcast 'It's Always Gameday In Buffalo' chatted with one of the men who is at the center of planning the NFL's broadcast schedule in a wide-ranging conversation that all football fans will enjoy. This episode was recorded before the NFL Draft.
    One of our favorite episodes of the year! Sal Capaccio and Matt Bove are joined by NFL VP of Broadcasting Mike North for a discussion on the process behind making the NFL schedule, primetime game scheduling, how networks protect certain games, the Week 1 game in Brazil, the Christmas Day/Thanksgiving matchups and more. Plus, how the Stefon Diggs trade affected the Bills-Texans matchup and overall thoughts on where the Bills stand in the schedule makers eyes.

Great Show! (please just release one episode at a time!)

This is a fantastic show. The hosts do a great job. But why are you releasing five different “episodes” for one 40 minute long podcast? I have previously unfollowed other podcasts on this network for doing the same thing. It is pointless and confusing and it completely clutters my feed for no reason. Please stop.

Keep up the good work TJ and Jon!

Just put out the show when you do it

Man I love the podcast, but do we really need to make a whole bunch of little snippets? It’s hard to ask anything to play your episode when it plays random 4 min bites. Small gripe. Love me some O-Line.

Best Show for Detroit Lions talk

There is no better place to listen to Detroit Lions updates. Jansen and Lang make a great duo, love the camaraderie and chemistry between them both.
