ESPN Wants Al Michaels to Join Troy Aikman In Their Monday Night Football Broadcast Booth

Reports say Al Michaels might be joining Troy Aikman in the “Monday Night Football” broadcast booth to rescue ESPN’s dying program. For some time, ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast hasn’t been doing well as it used to be, so AI Michael joining from Fox could work the magic for the network.

Awesemo reports that ESPN is nearing a deal to land Aikman away from Fox to be the color man on their MNF broadcast, and if the deal goes through, Michaels will be in the booth come what may.

Now, it’s being reported that longtime NBC broadcaster Al Michaels could be getting poached by ESPN to join Troy Aikman in the Monday Night Football broadcast booth.

Per NY Post’s Brad Marchand:

“ESPN is contemplating a pursuit of legendary play-by-player Al Michaels for “Monday Night Football,” The Post has learned.

No final decision on whether to fully engage Michaels has been made, according to sources.”

The article would go on to say that ESPN is expected to kick the tires on prying Joe Buck away from Fox before fully engaging on their Al Michaels pursuit. And given Buck’s obvious familiarity with Aikman from all their time together, perhaps that’s the most likely option.

ESPN has been trying to find stability in their Monday Night Football broadcast booth for a very long time now. It is sad that the Manningcast gets higher reviews than the main broadcast. If they were able to get Aikman and Michaels they would eliminate that problem for several years.

That is why they are paying Aikman like he is Romo. There is an added benefit of being a Cowboys QB. Yourheadline

off-the-field pockets can become fuller because more people know you than if you played for the Jags, sorry Trevor Lawrence.
