Joe Tessitore to replace Sean McDonough on ‘Monday Night Football’
Joe Tessitore has been chosen by ESPN to serve as the new voice of “Monday Night Football,” according to a report.
Multiple reporters said on Friday that Sean McDonough would no longer call “Monday Night Football” and instead will return to calling college football games. The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand reported on Twitter that Tessitore will replace him.
ESPN has not announced Tessitore, but The Post has learned he will be the new voice of MNF.

Tessitore has been with ESPN since 2002, calling boxing and then college football. Now he will be the new voice of “Monday Night Football.”
The bigger question is who will serve as his analyst. Marchand reports that Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss and Louis Riddick are all potential internal candidates for the job, while Kurt Warner and even Brett Favre could be external candidates.
McDonough had served as the announcer on MNF for two seasons. He replaced Mike Tirico for the 2016 season. With Jon Gruden leaving the booth to coach the Raiders, ESPN was already going to be making at least one change to their announcing team. Now it will be two.
