One Bills Live

For over three decades, Bills legend Steve Tasker has been a staple in
the Western New York community. A standout on special teams for the Bills
during his 12 seasons with the team, Tasker made a name for himself around
the
league. Not only did his outstanding achievements on the field earn
him numerous accolades, his commitment to the region solidified his place in
the hearts of Bills fans everywhere. Tasker, who remained close to the game
through his broadcast work for CBS, will get back to his roots with
Buffalo when he joins the Voice of the Bills John Murphy as co-host of
“One Bills Live,” presented by Kaleida Health. Like its predecessor,
“The John Murphy Show,” “One Bills Live” will give fans a daily dose
of the latest Bills news. The only show live from the home of the Bills –
One Bills Drive – fans can follow along with Tasker and Murphy, as well
as special guests, as they tackle all the hottest topics happening around
the NFL. The show will remain at its current time from noon to 3 p.m.
Monday through Friday and will be available on WGR Sports Radio 550, MSG
Networks and the MSG Go app.Murphy, who over the years has developed a
close relationship with Tasker, believes the Bills icon is the perfect
addition to the show. “I’ve known Steve since he came here in 1986,”
said Murphy. “Shortly after that, he started doing television shows. When
I was at Channel 7, he hosted “The Steve Tasker Show” and I was
the co-host…I’ve known him for 30-plus years. One of the many good
things about Steve doing the show, is he’s a broadcaster. He’s been at
CBS for 21 years at the highest level of football broadcasting.“He comes
in with  all that experience – all his football experience, playing at a
very high level for several years and making Pro Bowls. Adding in his
broadcast background, which is pretty impressive, I think it will make him a
great addition to the show.” While Tasker’s impressive resume
undoubtedly gives him a unique perspective to share with viewers, Murphy
believes that its Tasker’s time spent in Buffalo that makes him truly
special and able to connect with his audience.“Steve always impressed me,"
said Murphy. “Not that players aren’t tuned into the reality, but Steve
has always been tuned into real life. He knows what it’s like not to be in
the NFL. He lives his life like a person who is not a former professional
athlete in many ways. He’s easy to relate to. I think fans already know
that. Fans are familiar with him from all the TV work he’s done. He brings
an everyman aspect to the show and he’s committed to this area. I think
people tap into that.” For Tasker, this next chapter in his career is one
that he’s ready to embrace fully. “The Buffalo Bills have been a
tremendous part of my life and I am very eager to begin this opportunity,”
said Tasker. “This is an exciting time in franchise history and I am
thrilled to get involved on a daily basis. I look forward to working
with Murph to connect with Bills fans who have been so supportive of me for
a long time.”
