Westwood One announced that legendary sportscaster Marv Albert will be leaving Westwood One’s NFL broadcast team. Boomer Esiason will continue to serve as lead analyst for Westwood One’s Monday Night Football and Super Bowl broadcasts alongside a play-by-play announcer yet to be determined.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my eight seasons with Boomer Esiason and the rest of the Westwood One crew, but I just felt that with my commitments to NBA telecasts and other projects, I wanted to cut down my schedule moving forward,” said Albert on his departure.
“We thank Marv for eight great seasons as the voice of Monday Night Football and the Super Bowl,” said Howard Deneroff, Executive Producer of Westwood One Sports. “There’s only one Marv Albert, and his unmistakable voice and signature style made listening to him as much of a joy as it was working with him. We wish him well in future endeavors,” Deneroff added.
