This week the former Cowboys quarterback received a Sports Emmy nomination from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in the category of Outstanding Sports Personality-Sports Event Analyst for his work on CBS and the NFL Network.

Gary Danielson (CBS), Jon Gruden (ESPN), Kirk Herbstreit (ESPN/ABC), John Smoltz (Fox/FS1/MLB Network) were also nominated in that category.

In his first season in the booth, he was paired with play-by-play veteran Jim Nantz. Romo’s debut season generally drew positive reviews from fans and critics. Romo definitely made the right call retiring to the booth.
