NORFOLK, Va. (Tribune News Service) — Fox Sports broadcasters will be at Naval Station Norfolk on Saturday and Sunday in honor of the country's veterans.

On Saturday, NFL Insider Jay Glazer will host a viewing party for the "UFC Fight Night" being broadcast live on FS1 from ODU's Ted Constant Center. In between fights, the broadcast will cut back to Glazer, who will comment along with UFC welterweight fighter Neil Magny, an Army veteran.

On Sunday, the tribute turns to the NFL, where FOX's broadcast team of Glazer, Terry Bradshaw, Curt Menefee, Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson and Michael Strahan will be live on Pier 10 at the naval station for "FOX NFL Sunday," beginning at noon.

The "Fox NFL Kickoff" show starts at 11 a.m. from the base and will feature host Charissa Thompson, former NFL Pro Bowler Tony Gonzalez and former NFL quarterback Michael Vick, who played at Warwick High School in Newport News and at Virginia Tech.

"FOX Sports has a long history of honoring the armed services by broadcasting shows live from military locations around the world," Fox Sports president and executive producer Eric Shanks said in a press release. "To commemorate this Veterans Day, we're excited to take (the three shows) to the Naval Station Norfolk to support the servicemen and women who make it possible for us to live in freedom and security."
