  • Mike Tirico Reportedly Leaving ESPN For NBC; Sean McDonough Favorite To Replace Him

    Mike Tirico Reportedly Leaving ESPN For NBC; Sean McDonough Favorite To Replace Him by Cameron McDonough on Mon, Apr 25, 2016 at 5:38PM 1,875 Share this: A big sports media shakeup reportedly is in the works. Mike Tirico, who has been with ESPN since 1991, is leaving the network for NBC, sources told Sports Business Journal’s John Ourand on Monday. The extent of his new role is not yet known, but Ourand said Tirico “is expected” to be the play-by-play announcer on NBC’s five-game “Thursday Night Football” slate. Tirico has just about done it all while at ESPN. The now former “SportsCenter” anchor and “Monday Night Football” play-by-play announcer also has been involved in the network’s tennis, golf, college sports, NBA and World Cup coverage. The favorite to replace Tirico on “Monday Night Football” is another long-time ESPN employee, Sean McDonough, a source told Ourand. Tirco’s ESPN deal ends in the summer, so he still will be part of the network’s NBA playoff coverage until then, according to Ourand. Thumbnail photo via Kirby Lee/USA TODAY Sports Images
