ESPN Commentators

MNF (Monday Night Football) is a weekly live television broadcast on ESPN that airs once a week. The show used to air on ABC's sister station, but since the premiere of Dancing With the Stars, it has returned to ESPN. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, which resulted in significant reforms in the NFL, including fan limits in stadiums and player protocols, ESPN jumped in with three new MNF announcers. Here's a peek at the Monday Night Football booth announcers.

ESPN Football Commentators

Play-by-play announcer Steve Levy and color commentators Brian Griese and Louis Riddick make up the MNF announcers. The three had previously collaborated on MNF, covering the second half of the 2019 week one doubleheader. These three have taken over as permanent announcers, replacing Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland.

1. Steve Levy

Steve Levy has always been a sports journalist and broadcaster, where Brian Griese and Louis Riddick are both former NFL players.

2. Brian Griese

Brian played for four teams from 1998 and 2008: the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Chicago Bears. In 2008, he finished his career with the Buccaneers for the second time. Brian won a Super Bowl with the Broncos, led the NFL in passer rating, and topped all NFL quarterbacks in competition percentage during his career.

3. Louis Riddick

Louis was a safety in the National Football League from 1991 until 1998. He began his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers, then went on to play for the Atlanta Falcons twice, the Cleveland Browns, and the Oakland Raiders. After a brief stint in the XFL, he moved into managerial jobs, eventually becoming a pro scout for organizations like the Washington Football Team and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Aside from the three on ESPN's main network, ESPN2 has a new Monday Night Football broadcast.

Peyton Manning and Eli Manning serve as the announcers for Monday Night Football on ESPN2. The retired Super Bowl-winning quarterback brothers, dubbed the "Manning Cast," broadcast a more relaxed atmosphere.

"From their sofas, the Mannings break down the game as talking heads, frequently digressing at length from the on-field action to go deep with some football wonkery or welcome a series of famous guests, including LeBron James and Charles Barkley," according to The Atlantic.

The weekly show is a must-see, as the two brothers crack jokes and provide light commentary on the evening's clash. During the game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles on MNF on Sept. 27, Eli demonstrated his hip motions for the audience as Peyton battled with someone on Twitter.
