Pat McAfee is surely making himself at home at ESPN since signing his lucrative deal.
ESPN is shaking up its schedule and introducing new shows starting this fall.
One of the changes will have the retired punter contributing to another show as McAfee is set to be added to the rotation of First Take. McAfee will be on the show every Tuesday.
Furthermore, McAfee has some history with First Take as Molly Qerim used to co-host a 2 am call-time show with McAfee while he was still active in the NFL.
McAfee’s exit from FanDuel was one of several major talent moves that ESPN orchestrated this summer. ESPN announced that they had signed McAfee to a multi-year deal back in May. His ESPN debut on September 7 of The Pat McAfee Show officially moved to the media giant.
The Pat McAfee Show will serve as the new follow-on from First Take during the weekday broadcasts. McAfee said he was “honored” to be following First Take in the schedule.
McAfee assured fans that his show would remain largely the same, albeit with a little less profanity. To combat his mouth, ESPN has already stated that the show will run on a delay so their censors have time to catch any F-words that may come out.
