Monday Night Football has been bringing fans the most prominent games under the bright lights for 50 years (716 games). It featured some of the best play by play talent the game has ever seen. Now over at ESPN, there is a significant shakeup in the broadcast booth.
According to PFT and first reported by Richard Deitsch of The Athletic, Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland will no longer be calling games. After what happened last season, it was just a matter of time before they would no longer be on the network
Deitsch also reports that replacements will come from ESPN itself and have already decided on who will be replacing them. Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland will have “prominent roles at ESPN.
According to multiple reports, ESPN did try to sign former NFL Quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tony Romo, and Sunday Night Football analyst Al Michaels
If any changes are made, it will be temporary. Rumors are swirling that the next television deal could see the big game moving back to ABC. They haven’t been on NBC Since the 2005 NFL season.
We will know who will be in the broadcast booth when the 2020 NFL season gets underway September 10, and also when Monday Night Football gets underway on September 14.
