The NFL’s decision to simulcast this afternoon’s Bears-Saints game on Nickelodeon is providing the world a chance to listen to Noah Eagle.
Eagle is the 24-year-old son of CBS announcer Ian Eagle. He’s following in his father’s footsteps as a broadcaster, and he clearly has the chops for it.
Noah Eagle is already the radio play-by-play man for the Los Angeles Clippers, and this weekend he’s joining his father in calling an NFL playoff game. Ian Eagle called the action in yesterday’s Bills-Colts matchup.
Overall, the reviews for Noah and his broadcast partner Nate Burleson have been overwhelmingly positive. They are part of a three-person booth along with Nickelodeon actress Gabrielle Green.

Noah Eagle is doing a great job of balancing solid play calling, explaining the game/rules and mixing in the fun. #nfl

How does Noah Eagle, calling the game on Nickelodeon, not have a job as an NFL broadcaster? He’s better than at least half the play-by-play people working today.

This #Nickelodeon broadcast is killing it. Noah Eagle is phenomenal and so genuinely energetic. Gabrielle Green & Nate Burleson make this super fun. Throw in the graphics and ridiculousness… let’s do this more often for other sports! Perfect blend for kids & adults to enjoy.

Noah Eagle sounds too much like Ian. I don’t like it.

In our estimation, Noah Eagle is plenty good enough to do play-by-play for an NFL playoff game on a major network. He’ll probably have to wait a little bit longer for that opportunity, but not too long judging by how proficient he is as a broadcaster already.
Like father, like son.
