ESPN expanding agreement with Peyton Manning's Omaha Productions company to include CFB broadcasts
ESPN is expanding the agreement that brought on the popular “Manningcast” broadcast that debuted this season.
During the 2021 NFL season, ESPN launched an alternate broadcast option for Monday Night Football hosted by Peyton and Eli Manning. Known as the Manningcast, the broadcast featured the brothers discussing the game at hand alongside a panel of guests.
On Wednesday, ESPN announced an extension and expanded agreement with Peyton’s Omaha Productions company. According to the release, the extension will run through the 2024 season and will include alternative presentations for certain college football, UFC, and golf events. There will be multiple events per year for each sport with regular season and postseason matchups for college football, including the College Football Playoff National Championship.
“I’ve always loved talking football with my brother, and it was even more fun to do it while watching ESPN’s Monday Night Football,” explained Peyton via the press release. “Eli and I are excited to sign on for another season, and the entire Omaha team is looking forward to producing MegaCasts that celebrate other sports.”
