ESPN’s catalog of original content continues to grow. The worldwide leader in sports has inked a multi-year agreement with the crew that powers the popular sports platform, The Pat McAfee Show. Under this deal, the show will begin airing on ESPN in the fall.
“Pat is a proven talent. He and his team have built The Pat McAfee Show into one of the most engaging programs in sports and all of media,” ESPN Chairman Jimmy Pitaro said.
“It’s a destination for athlete interviews and breaking news, and the centerpiece of a growing community of sports fans. We’re honored to bring Pat and the show to ESPN through a multifaceted, multiplatform approach.”
Additionally, the show’s namesake, Pat McAfee, will continue to contribute to ESPN’s collection of shows, including College GameDay Built by The Home Depot. He has also helped host alternate broadcasts for games during the College Football Playoff on ESPN.
“We are extremely honored that ESPN is blessing us with this opportunity to be a part of the next chapter of the ESPN family. We do not take that lightly and are going to work hard to make sure this is a success,” McAfee said.
“All parties involved agree the time has come for a bunch of sports stooges in a Thunderdome in Indiana to sprinkle in some fun and celebration of sport as well.”
