ESPN personality Paul Finebaum will remain with the network for the foreseeable future.
That’s because Finebaum, who serves as an analyst on the SEC Network’s SEC Nation and as host of The Paul Finebaum Show on ESPN, signed a multi-year contract extension with ESPN this week.
Specific terms of the deal were not announced, but it is known that with the extension, he will continue his noted duties on both networks, and have other additional appearances on the ESPN networks. Finebaum said he was looking forward to his future with ESPN and the SEC Network.
“I’m thrilled to be a member of the ESPN family and look forward to continuing our show on the SEC Network,” Finebaum said. “I consider myself incredibly blessed to do this every day, and I’d like to thank everyone at ESPN, as well as all of our loyal listeners and viewers, for their support.”
Stephanie Druley, Senior Vice president ESPN Events and Studio production, shared Finebaum’s positive thoughts on the extension.
“Paul is one of the most compelling personalities on the SEC Network and ESPN,” Druley said. “His passion for the SEC and its fan base is evident every day on the Paul Finebaum Show. Over the years on the SEC Network Paul and his callers have delivered daily with captivating debate and light-hearted humor. We look forward to enjoying The Paul Finebaum Show, and Paul’s varied and valued contributions to our studio show programming, as we head yet again into another jam-packed football season.”
Finebaum will be a part of the SEC Network’s special summer edition of SEC Nation this Sunday, July 15 from SEC Summmerfest. It will be presented by Regions Bank. The special college football pre-season broadcast kicks off 45 hours of live coverage from Atlanta ahead of next week’s SEC Kickoff.
