The sports network announced Wednesday that self-proclaimed star Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are leaving Fox to host “Monday Night Football” for ESPN.

The announcement came after weeks of speculation about the duo, who have been calling games together for 20 seasons. They called six Super Bowls together on Fox.

Buck and Aikman, who was also a Super Bowl-winning quarterback with the Dallas Cowboys, will also contribute content to ESPN’s streaming service, ESPN+.

Referring to his father, late advertising legend Jack Buck, Buck said: “My first memories of walking around football fields go along with my dad when he called the radio ‘Monday Night Football.’” Back in the stadium on Monday nights with Troy — which I feel Extremely comfortable with him and I trust him – and to start a new chapter, for us and ESPN, has got me excited about this season and our future.”

Back in January, Aikman said he didn’t know what his future at Fox Sports would look like. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback also held talks with Amazon regarding “Thursday Night Football.”

The New York Post previously reported that Aikman will be heading to “Monday Night Football.” Last week, the newspaper also reported that Buck is expected to join Aikman in leaving Fox.

“Monday Night Football” premiered on ABC 52 years ago in September of this year.
