Poppy Miller calls CBS Sports Golazo Network a necessity

Poppy Miller fills a number of roles for CBS in its football coverage, both on Paramount+ and the Golazo Network. The host and presenter is perhaps more famous for her work with Serie A, where she teams up with Matteo Bonetti, Marco Messina and Mike Grella to cover Serie A. Yet her knowledge of the sport as a whole goes far beyond just the Italian top flight.

As a result, she is also on Box 2 Box. This is the analytic show that’s on the CBS Sports Golazo Network. Golazo Network is a free channel that anyone can watch with just an internet connection. Along with studio shows, live broadcasts make CBS Sports Golazo Network a useful resource for American football fans.

And while she’s not originally from the United States, Poppy Miller understands the American soccer scene better than most. After playing in college, she spent a long time in the media department of the Charleston Battery. Miller also covered Major League Soccer before switching to CBS. Now Miller has a diversified list of responsibilities at CBS. Miller says a 24/7 football channel like CBS Sports Golazo Network is a necessity for football fans.

The need for more coverage

“It feels like a necessity given the demand for football coverage in this country and a luxury in how much is available on the network,” Miller said.

Her attribution to CBS’ content offerings is fair. As well as carrying the UEFA Champions League, CBS also has Miller’s work for Serie A, the NWSL and most recently the US Open Cup. CBS signed a deal to broadcast the semifinals and final of the US Open Cup, and CBS Sports Golazo Network is an ideal launchpad to broadcast those matches. Previously, select games in the Round of 32 were available for free on CBS Sports Golazo Network.

“Having so many properties and live matches allows us to connect the shows with live games that highlight the variety of football coverage available.”

Much of that includes women’s soccer. Miller started playing football at a young age in Nottingham, and she found herself playing the sport mostly. The fun and talent brought her to the United States to play at the University of South Carolina-Beaufort. There she further developed her appreciation for the female game. Then that opened doors to cover the women’s game with CBS.

“I’m so proud of the love CBS and Paramount bring to women’s soccer,” said Miller. “Even before the Golazo network launched, it has always felt like a huge priority.”

For Miller, that included coverage of the CONCACAF W Championship, where she made the semi-finals and final in Mexico.

Those games were on Paramount+, before the launch of the Golazo network. However, Miller took that expertise to the free channel, where her preparation and further research expanded. While covering Serie A week in and week out, the Golazo Network and Box 2 Box are much more diverse in the leagues and leagues they cover.

One thing that helps Miller is the crew around her. “Pete Radovich, Mike Nastri and Jelani Rooks encourage us to be ourselves and give us the confidence and freedom to try things that are outside the box.”

Then Miller, in collaboration with Aaron West and Ian Joy, can do just that, be himself. “Ian was the first person I worked with when I started at CBS. I will always be indebted to him for how much he cared for me and helped me during that time, and still do to this day.
