ESPN Will Not Air the National Anthem Before Monday Night Football Games

ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro said that ESPN will not show the national anthem on Monday Night Football.

ESPN pays approximately $2 billion a year to broadcast Monday Night Football.

Stephanie Druley, ESPN’s senior vice president of event and studio production, said the network showed the national anthem three times last year: following Hurricane Harvey’s devastation, the Las Vegas massacre and President Trump’s comments on the national anthem protests.
