MNF will air on ABC, ESPN, ESPN+
Disney, the parent company of ABC and ESPN, paid a reported 2.7 billion dollars per season for the rights to broadcast Monday Night Football through 2033.
Most MNF games will air on ESPN, with ABC and ESPN+ also simulcasting games.
Who hosts MNF?
When you tune unto the main broadcast for the 2022-23 season of Monday Night Football, who will be calling the games? MNF uses a three man crew, with one long time broadcast professional paired with two former football players. The crew is as follows:
- Steve Levy
- Brian Griese
- Louis Riddick
Steve Levy is a longtime ESPN journalist (of SportsCenter fame) and sports commentator.
Brian Griese played his college football as a QB at the University of Michigan, then, despite that setback and limited athletic ability, went on to a successful NFL career that surprised many pundits.
Louis Riddick is a former star NFL player and commentator who began hosting MNF in 2020.

Can I watch MNF on Paramount+?
No, as much as we love the NFL on CBS package for NFL fans, especially NFL fans in AFC markets, the Paramount+ platform dopes not carry ESPN and is therefore not an option for watching MNF. You can get a lot of in-market NFL action, golf, college basketball, and college football on Paramount+, and at a major savings, so if you’re looking for a live TV streaming option that is more limited, Paramount+ could be for you.
