As announced this afternoon on One Bills Live on WGR Sports Radio 550 and MSG TV, Eric Wood has re-joined the Buffalo Bills organization as a member of the Media and Content Team. Wood will serve as radio color commentator alongside John Murphy for Bills game broadcasts on WGR Sports Radio 550 and Entercom’s Bills Radio Network. He will also regularly contribute content to One Bills Live and all Bills media and content platforms.
“I consider myself extremely fortunate to have spent my entire NFL career with the Buffalo Bills,” the former Pro Bowl center said. “Buffalo’s community, fans and organization are incredibly special to me and I am very proud to begin my broadcasting career with the people who provided so much support for so many years.”
Wood originally joined the Bills as a first-round pick in 2009 and became the team’s starting center during the 2010 season. He spent nine seasons anchoring the Bills offensive line, starting a total of 120 games and earning a Pro Bowl selection in 2015. He was the team’s nominee for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2015 and 2016. Wood replaces Mark Kelso as Bills color commentator, who has decided to step away from broadcasting after 13 years to focus more on his role with NASCAR racing team JTG Daugherty Racing. Pegula Sports & Entertainment and the Buffalo Bills sincerely thank Kelso for his contributions and service.
