Jamie McMurray joining Fox Sports NASCAR coverage in 2019

NASCAR veteran Jamie McMurray is making the move to the broadcast booth next season and joining the Fox Sports NASCAR team.

The seven-race winner will be working as an analyst on Nascar Race Hub and Nascar Race Day, along with other assignments, it was announced on Wednesday.

McMurray has appeared as a guest analyst on Fox Sports in the past and says the experience led him to try out a TV gig rather than staying on the racing side of things as he winds down his racing career.

“It’s a whole new world, but that’s what I am most excited about – the new challenge and discomfort that comes with doing something completely out of my element,” McMurray said in a press release on the new job.

McMurray may not be all done with driving, though. He reportedly has an offer to race in next year’s Daytona 500 for the team that gave him his first and latest race in the NASCAR Cup series, Chip Ganassi Racing.

Fox Sports is owned by the parent company of FoxNews.com
