Well, it didn’t take long into retirement for future Hall of Famer Jason Kelce to continue to expand his reach and platform in the media space. According to Andrew Marchand of The Athletic, the former 13-year veteran will be joining ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” pregame broadcast.

Kelce has hosted the ‘New Heights” podcast show with his brother, Travis Kelce, for over two years and has found significant success with that program. Well-liked by the NFL community and fanbases across the association, his insight and personality are an encouraging addition to the broadcast.

According to Marchand’s reporting, Jason Kelce was “sought after by multiple networks” before coming to an agreement with ESPN. Along with his podcast, Amazon Prime Video released a documentary about his life and final season, both on and off the field, which was also extremely well-received and viewed.

With Robert Griffin III no longer expected to be on the program, Jason Kelce is expected to be joining Scott Van Pelt, Marcus Spears, and Ryan Clark on “Monday Night Countdown.”
