Source: Mike Tirico leaving ESPN for NBC

🕐 1 min read

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – A person familiar with the move says Mike Tirico is leaving ESPN and ABC Sports this summer when his contract expires to work for NBC.

The person spoke Monday night to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither network had made an announcement about the broadcaster. SportsBusiness Journal was first to report the news.

Tirico began working at ESPN in 1991 and became its “Monday Night Football,” play-by-play announcer in 2006. He seamlessly transitions to call the action for major golf and tennis tournaments, NBA and college basketball and college football. The Ann Arbor, Michigan, resident was raised in Queens, New York, and graduated from Syracuse.
