ESPN Looking at a Hefty Price Tag to Keep ‘Monday Night Football’

Jan 6, 2011  •  Post A Comment

ESPN appears to be on the verge of paying the NFL a huge sum to extend its contract to televise “Monday Night Football,” B&C reports.

The amount will be as much as $1.9 billion annually, the story says. The current agreement between the sports network and the NFL–an eight-year deal for a total of about $8.8 billion–expires after the 2013 season.

The new deal would reportedly add nine or 10 years to the current contract.
