James Lofton joins Packers TV Network broadcast team as preseason analyst

The Packers on Tuesday announced that Pro Football Hall of Famer and former Green Bay receiver James Lofton will join the Packers Television Network broadcast team as a color analyst for the preseason.

Lofton, who played 16 seasons in the NFL, including nine with Green Bay, will partner with Kevin Harlan in the preseason television booth.

The Packers' 1978 first-round draft pick was an analyst for Sunday Night Football on Westwood One from 2009 to '16 before joining CBS Sports in 2017 as an analyst for the NFL on CBS. Lofton also spent time during his broadcast career with CNN and NBC Sports.

The Packers' preseason kicks off at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 9, against the Tennessee Titans. Locally, the Packers Television Network is led by TODAY'S TMJ4 (WTMJ-TV), which provides year-round programming, in addition to preseason games.
