The veteran CBS sportscaster (and KSL alumnus) will be appearing slightly less on Sundays than he has in past seasons. But considerably more overall. Nantz will be the play-by-play voice of Thursday Night Football through eight games on CBS and seven on the NFL Network. He’ll do nine national games on CBS (when the network has Sunday doubleheaders) and three regional matchups. “So it’s 27 games versus 17 normally,” ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
