Tirico, Gruden, Salters: ESPN’s new MNF team makes debut tonight

 


 

Monday Night Football makes its 2012 preseason debut tonight — and, yes, we know it’s a Thursday.

Mike Tirico and analyst Jon Gruden will call the Green Bay Packers versus San Diego Chargers (8 p.m. ET, ESPN, WatchESPN; the game is also available in Spanish on ESPN Deportes).

It’s Tirico and Gruden’s first game together since ESPN announced the new two-man booth in February.

It’s also the first MNF game for new sideline reporter Lisa Salters.

ESPN’s new team met for the first time in New York City in May. The images above are from that visit when they participated in a photo shoot at ABC’s Times Square Studios.

Check the trio out tonight and throughout the entire 2012 MNF season.
