Popular NFL talk show host Pat McAfee is reportedly set to move his show to ESPN.
According to the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand, the former Indianapolis Colts punter will be hosting The Pat Mcafee Show on said network as of this fall.
Marchand is reporting that McAfee, who signed a four-year deal worth $120 million with FanDuel in 2021, will make “more than eight figures” with The Worldwide Leader In Sports, despite Disney’s plan to cut costs and lay off over 7,000 employees in 2023.
The 36-year-old has built up a remarkable audience on YouTube and was a sought-after media personality, with other media companies making offers too. While the show is expected to remain on the streaming platform, some parts of it will air on ESPN.
The Pat McAfee Show has been around since McAfee retired from the NFL in 2016. It started at Barstool Sports before being hosted under the umbrella of the former player’s own company and then various others as part of syndication deals. He signed a deal with FanDuel in late 202, joining ESPN’s College GameDay as a panelist a year later.
McAfee also had a stint as a WWE announcer and wrestler. He was part of the commentary crew for this year’s Royal Rumble.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
