ESPN analyst making switch to FOX Sports
Former ESPN analyst Emmanuel Acho is making the switch to FOX Sports. The college football analyst and television personality announced the move on Wednesday.
Acho will be joining the Speak For Yourself show with the network.
“It is physically impossible to be more excited than I am to join FOX’s Speak For Yourself. Literally a dream come true,” Acho said in a video. “Partnering with my big bro Marcellus Wiley, gonna be delivering funny, informational, educational sports opinions. It’s gonna be a privilege to be watched by y’all but, more importantly, a privilege to serve y’all. So I can’t wait to get to it. I’ll see y’all soon.”
Welcome to the FOX Sports family @thEMANacho!

Acho will be co-hosting the show which airs at 3:30 p.m. ET. The show had an opening for a host after Jason Whitlock’s contract expired recently.
During his time at ESPN, Acho became one of the primary college football analysts within the network. He also made frequently appearances on Get Up! and College Football Live, as well as other programs.
