Joe Tessitore will move to Saturday night college football play-by-play
ESPN’s Joe Tessitore will be moving to Saturday night college football games, working along side Todd Blackledge, the network announced on Wednesday.
Tessitore will replace Brad Nessler, whose contract was not renewed. Nessler is reportedly moving to CBS.
Steve Levy will now do play-by-play for weekly Saturday afternoon games, teaming up with Brian Griese.
ESPN also announced that Sam Ponder is joining ABC Saturday Night Football as a sideline reporter. In August, Ponder announced that she would be hanging up her sideline “flats” in order to spend more time with her family.
Ponder will also continue to be a part of College GameDay and College Football Live.
