White will be replaced by the legendary Peter Drury, who has been covering top Premier League games since 1998 and was recently featured on the league’s world feed.
The news of the replacement was disclosed by an individual who spoke on the condition of anonymity on Tuesday because the information was not supposed to be made public yet. The development was first reported by England’s Daily Mail and World Soccer Talk.
NBC Sports declined to comment on White or Drury.
Since NBC acquired the rights to England’s top soccer league in 2013, White has been synonymous with the network’s coverage of the competition. He began working for the network in 2012, covering Major League Soccer games.
He posted on Twitter in February that “I’ll be back in Chicago in 2022 and for a longer spell this time.”
MLS’s contracts with ESPN and Fox expire at the end of this season, raising the possibility of a change in broadcasters.
White covered Seattle Sounders games on local radio and television before joining NBC.
Fans of American soccer will recognize Drury’s voice. In addition to the Premier League, he has appeared in games on CBS during its coverage of the Champions League.
This season marks the beginning of NBC’s six-year, $2.7 billion contract extension with the Premier League.
