Kaylee, 36, will join as a sideline reporter for NFL primetime matchups this season.

She currently works for ABC as a reporter based in New York.

But his previous role at Disney involved working in college sports for ESPN.

She worked on the SEC Network and the Longhorn Network during her time with the sports media company.

And she’s returning to the sport after five years away working on news for CBS and ABC.

Amazon announced the news on Twitter last month.

Kaylee tweeted, “Back on the sidelines!! Here we go.”

Amazon will become the exclusive home of Thursday Night Football this season.

They signed an 11-year contract that would net $1 billion per season.

And Kaylee will join a host of celebrity broadcasters as part of the coverage.

Al Michaels was recruited by NBC to lead play-by-play commentary with Kirk Herbstreit in the booth.
