Pat McAfee has broken the internet again, and it’s not due to an outlandish NFL take.
He has continued to dominate the airwaves, both with his daily show and with others reporting on his success as well.
McAfee has recently announced a deal with ESPN, and his show is slated to air on the network in the fall of 2023.
After this deal was finalized, this also means that his partnership with FanDuel is over, per Andrew Marchand, via Joe Pompliano.

As Pompliano indicates, McAfee is slated to earn more than $10 million per year from ESPN.
While this is significantly less than his deal with FanDuel, McAfee must believe that this is the right move for him and his team.
This show started as a small, local broadcast, and has quickly turned into a cultural phenomenon.
McAfee’s audience is massive, and he has fans across the globe.
As he indicates, his show will now be broadcast on ESPN, which will only expand their already massive reach.
This show will also be streamed on ESPN+ and ESPN’s YouTube, making the show free and accessible for all.
McAfee’s deal could be the start of something more and could be a catalyst for other content creators.
The Kelce brothers have a hit podcast as well, which has drawn a massive following.
