Romo is Back! Corona Extra® Teams Up with Tony Romo As Hotline Operator for Second Year

The Popular Football Analyst Returns to Offer Fans Advice and Helps Them “Find Their Gameday Beach” This Season


CHICAGO, August 15, 2019 Corona Extra® has extended its contract with former star quarterback and current football analyst, Tony Romo, as the operator and face of the fan-favorite Corona Hotline.

Throughout the season, fans can call the Corona Hotline at 1-844-9-Corona to catch Romo’s gameday pep talks and fantasy football fire-ups and enter for a chance to win prizes like a Corona Gameday Beer Fridge, or a trip to Clearwater Beach to watch the Big Game beachside.

“As a football analyst and passionate gameday contributor, I am thrilled to manage the Corona Hotline once again,” said Romo. "The Corona Hotline brings together such a unique array of gameday content and showcases all the excitement and heartbreak that football brings. I am looking forward to enjoying my lime-filled Corona while helping fans get through another fun, competitive season.”

Starting on Monday, August 19th, Romo will take center stage in Corona Extra’s Fall campaign – a complete 360-marketing effort including TV advertising, retail programming, and social/digital promotion all centered around the Corona Hotline.

“Football is back, and that means the Corona Hotline is, too,” said Ann Legan, Vice President of Brand Marketing, Corona. “Tony has such a dynamic, infectious personality, and when paired with his vast knowledge of football, he’s a perfect fit to help fans find their ‘Gameday Beach’.”

As always, Corona encourages consumers to enjoy its products and relax responsibly.
