Report: ESPN interested in targeting legendary broadcaster for Monday Night Football role
ESPN is reportedly looking into bringing a legendary broadcaster back to its network.
Andrew Marchand of the New York Post is reporting that ESPN is considering pursuing Al Michaels to be the play-by-play voice of its Monday Night Football broadcast. No decision has been made and the network has declined to comment at this time.
Per Marchand, the interest in pursuing Michaels comes as Amazon Prime Video is looking at locking the longtime broadcaster down as the primary voice of its Thursday Night Football coverage.

Michaels was once the voice of Monday Night Football on ABC. He has most recently been covering the NFL with Cris Collinsworth on NBC.
Currently, Steve Levy, Brian Griese and Louis Riddick Jr. have been providing coverage of ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcasts. The network also added the Manningcast to this year’s schedule, providing fans an alternate look into the sport.
Marchand has also reported that discussions between Michaels and Amazon Prime Video have progressed, but that there are still some unanswered questions.
