In wake of departures, ESPN gets good news with this broadcasting legend's extension

ESPN gets to keep someone after all!

Musberger god

The World Wide Leader in sports has been losing a whole lot of talent and a whole lot of money recently. People like Skip Bayless, Mike Tirico, Chris Berman, Ray Lewis, and Cris Carter among others are either leaving or retiring in the next year. Fortunately, there's one legend who's decided to stay on and continue his legacy.

Musberger has been with ESPN and ABC since 1990 and was the first voice people heard when the SEC Network started in 2014. Musberger's on-air career has spanned five decades and will span at least a few more years.

ESPN Executive Vice President Production and Programming, John Wildhack, noted: "This agreement will help build upon one of the most extraordinary careers in all of sports. The impact that Brent's work has had on generations of sports fans is immeasurably positive and we are thrilled he will continue to be a significant part of the ESPN family, including the SEC Network."

Musberger has enjoyed himself on the job a whole lot because he was the man who said, "The SEC is the best football conference in the country. You can't beat it." He's not wrong and hopefully we'll get a lot more lines like that out of the legend before he calls it quits.
