NBC Sports Bay Area Eyeing Hunter Pence and Joe Staley



SANTA ROSA, CA – Two Bay Area legends could be stepping into the broadcast world with NBC Sports Bay Area. The network is targeting former San Francisco Giants player Hunter Pence and former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley for studio roles.

Pence is a four-time all-star and two-time World Series Champion with the Giants in 2012 and 2014. The 37-year old spent eight of 14 MLB seasons with the Giants and still calls San Francisco home.

All Staley has ever known as a professional is the city of San Francisco. The Central Michigan-product played all 13 seasons with the 49ers. Staley played left tackle for twelve of them, earning six pro bowls and a spot on the NFL’s All-2010s team.

Staley and Pence would be fan-favorite hires as NBC Sports Bay Area gears up for another round of Giants baseball and 49ers football.
