The American network announced Wednesday that Hull will join Bill Clement and Ray Ferraro on NBC's studio team.
"Throughout his NHL career, Brett was known for his candour and colour, and we are confident he will bring those same attributes as a broadcaster," said Flood. "I strongly believe that Brett's shoot-from-the-hip style . . . will be a huge hit with hockey fans in the U.S."
Hull, who had his No. 16 retired by the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday, won two Stanley Cups during his career. He finished third all-time with 741 goals and added 650 assists.
He'll make his television debut on Sat., Jan. 13. Hull will then work NBC's Sunday telecasts.
