(WXYZ) - He's an NFL wide receiver, a fan favorite, a husband, father, and now, Nate Burleson can add 'Emmy nominee' to his name.
The Lions wideout picked up a nomination for the 35th Annual Michigan Emmy Awards for his work on WXYZ's Ford Lions Report Live.
Burleson was recognized in the category of 'Sports - Program Feature/Segment.'
Ford Lions Report Live was also nominated for an Emmy in the category of "Sports - Program Series."
Each week on the team's official pregame show, Burleson hosts an interview segment with a teammate, but the specific entry up for the Emmy featured Nate interviewing...Nate.
The segment was featured on the Week 17 episode of the Ford Lions Report Live.
Burleson has regularly appeared on ESPN and the NFL Network as a guest analyst, and has repeatedly said TV work is something he would gladly pursue after his football career comes to a close.
