The commentators of Monday Night Football Games have not yet been selected. ESPN has made a plan to reassign the current broadcasting team. The Current broadcasting team consists of Booger McFarland and Joe Tessitore. The decision is made after observing the constant viewer criticism and low ratings. The media giant is now ready to replace them, but it has not yet decided who will take over.
Why Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland are out of MNF?
An awful announcing survey was on the ESPN broadcasting team of Booger McFarland and Joe Tessitore. The survey revealed that 35 percent of the awful announcing voters gave them an overall grade of F. The survey also revealed that 80 percent of voters rate them with grade C or lower.
The team earned the lowest amount of A and B. Fans never got excited about McFarland and Tessitore’s announcements. Monday Night Football had extensively lost popularity due to the announcers. The announcers were then referred to as a joke.
Executives then understood it was time to make a change. Both of them will take on new roles with the broadcasting company. Tessitore will continue working as an announcer for boxing. He will also take the host of the ABC reality competition television series called “Holey Moley.” McFarland will be playing in the future of ESPN broadcasting. He will no longer be in front of the camera; rather, it will be in the studio.
Who will be the 2020 Monday night football announcer?
The oddsmakers at Bovada have released some odds on most probable candidates to be broadcasting from next fall-
Pat McAfee: When entertainment is necessary in the first place, McAfee might be the best option for ESPN. After his retirement from the NFL in 2017, he has become a sports media sensation.
Peyton Manning: Peyton Manning is considered as one of the top candidates to be broadcasting on MNF from next fall. His every appearance, including on his show Peyton’s Places on ESPN+, Peyton has provided must-see TV.
Tony Romo: Tony Romo’s contract is expected to expire after the NFL Playoffs. Reports have surfaced that ESPN is preparing to make the former Dallas Cowboys signal-caller a massive offer. The offer entails $10 to $14 million per year for Tony Rome to join the broadcast team.
The followings are some of the equally competitive candidates:
- Dan Orlovsky
- Kurt Warner
- Matt Hasselbeck
- Greg Olsen
- Kevin Burkhardt
- Larry Fitzgerald
- Ian Eagle
- Steve Levy
Monday night football crew 2020
As per the Athletic’s Richard Deitsch, a crew will get hired internally by ESPN while Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland both remain with the network. The last part indicates that Joe Tessitore could go back to college football games and hire someone up through the ranks.
ESPN is going to hire a new Monday Night Football booth from the potential candidates. Yet, no decision has been made who are going to be hired. The successors will be appointed internally from ESPN. Both Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland will also remain in prominent roles at ESPN.
