The Pat McAfee Show Headed to ESPN in Blockbuster Deal



Pat McAfee

Pat McAfee is bringing his media empire to ESPN. Andrew Marchand and the New York Post were first to break the news, which was then confirmed by McAfee himself with a pre-recorded video package.

The rumors of McAfee changing media allegiances for his show and walking away from his $120 million deal with FanDuel are true. McAfee’s new deal with ESPN will earn the former WVU kicker and NFL punter $10 million per year.

The Pat McAfee Show will remain in its daily spot on YouTube and McAfee will be bringing his entire crew with him to continue in their roles as well. In addition to living on YouTube, the show will also air as part of the network’s daily programing on both ESPN and ESPN+. This move is expected to officially take place in the fall.

Ironically, McAfee, who is taking him away after the birth of his daughter, did not address his move to ESPN during his latest appearance on his show.

McAfee is, of course, no stranger to working with ESPN. He joined the College GameDay crew last season and even hosted his own MegaCasts during selects games throughout the college football season. He also still occasionally shows up on WWE programing and pay-per-views.
