SNY announced today that former Giants star RB Tiki Barber has joined SNY for the network’s New York Giants playoff coverage beginning this Sunday.  In addition, former Giants offensive lineman Shaun O’Hara will continue his analyst role on SNY’s Giants coverage – including the network’s Big Blue Live post game show – which will air immediately after Sunday’s NFC Championship game.  Big Blue Live will showcase all of the post-game press conferences, exclusive on-field interviews and reactions from both the Giant and 49ers players and coaches.

"I am looking forward to providing my insights for SNY's Big Blue Live post game show.  Hopefully it will be after a Giants win as they continue on the road to Indianapolis and the Super Bowl,” said Tiki Barber.
