ESPN has extended the contracts of its veteran NFL reporters Suzy Kolber and Trey Wingo. Kolber, who joined the sports network in 1993, has been a sideline reporter for Monday Night Football and earlier Sunday Night Football and now will be the full-time host of pregame show Monday Night Countdown. She will continue to host weekday editions of NFL Insiders. Wingo, who has been with the Worldwide Leader since 1997, has been the face of NFL Live since it debuted in July 2003. He will continue to host the weekday afternoon news and information show as well as the NFL PrimeTime highlights show on Mondays. “Suzy and Trey have helped shape our daily presentation of NFL news and information as much as anyone, so it is particularly exciting to see them expand into even bigger roles with ESPN this season and in the years ahead,” added Seth Markman, Senior Coordinating Producer of NFL studio shows. “Not only do they bring out the best in our analysts and insiders, they are highly respected in NFL circles and trusted by our viewers.”
