ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” will boast a better selection of games and new anchors this season, President Jimmy Pitaro said, giving the Walt Disney Co. sports network a chance to boost ratings following a drop in 2017.
Speaking with reporters at ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut, Pitaro also said the network’s relations with the NFL have “positive momentum” after some tense years.
“The relationship, the partnership is incredibly important to us,” Pitaro said, citing weekly discussions between the league and network executives. “That programming cuts across everything we’re doing. We’re feeling very positive momentum.”
