ESPN is bring back its “MNF” announce team for a second season

2 min read


The first year was deemed a success so why mess with it? That would be the direction ESPN has chosen for its “Monday Night Football” booth.

Richard Deitsch of The Athletic with a Friday news drop of sorts saying Steve Levy, Brian Griese and Louis Riddick will return for a second season.

The trio was immensely better than the previous two seasons, which saw a disastrous rookie debut for Jason Witten, who return to the NFL after a major flop.

He had been teamed with Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland. That duo got a second season and was just as bad.

That led to the change bringing in Levy, Griese, and Riddick. That trio may not be mentioned aside of Howard Cosell, Frank Gifford, and Don Meredith in the long run but they were a vast improvement from the previous voices.

What could be interesting in the future will be Levy’s direction. He is a big-time hockey guy and ESPN is back in the NHL business starting with the 2021-22 sason.

And, there is always the possibility Riddick will get a front-office job. He had numerous GM interviews this offseason.
