Who hosts MNF?
When you tune unto the main broadcast for the 2023-24 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 does 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.

How to watch MNF on the ESPN app
ESPN programming is available on the Watch ESPN app via “TV Everywhere” if your pay TV provider carries ESPN (and most do). To watch live sports on ESPN through the app, use the login credentials from your live TV streaming or cable provider to login to the app. For example, Spectrum or Xfinity cable subscribers can stream MNF on the ESPN app using their login account.
When you select login, ESPN will prompt you to enter your pay TV credentials. This works for cable and streaming subscribers.
The ESPN app is supported by most major streaming devices including iPhone, Roku, Smart TVs, and tablets. In the screenshots below, I demonstrate how to login to the ESPN app based on my first-hand experience.
