(L-R) Production spotter Tony Granieri, analyst Jon Gruden and play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico. Said Granieri: “I get paid to watch football. Next to a Super Bowl winning coach. In the MNF booth. In the end, my job is a dream.”
PITTSBURGH – Monday Night Football announcers Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden have a road game every week. Tonight they’ll be working in their seventh booth in as many weeks when they call the Houston Texans at the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN). Fortunately, the MNF team has a strong supporting staff that makes every assignment feel more like a “home game.” Recently, Front Row introduced you to longtime MNF statistician Marty Aronoff, who has spent much of his career working alongside Tirico.
This photo gallery will introduce you to a few other team members – and some machinery – essential to the MNF production process. Also, please visit the Front Row Facebook page for more on this team.
