ESPN Radio is once again gearing up for the college football and NFL regular season kickoffs with coverage plan across live games, marquee studio shows, on-site activations, fan promotions and more. ESPN Radio's new primary college football commentator team for this season will be led by play-by-play voice Sean Kelley alongside analyst Barrett Jones and sideline reporter Ian Fitzsimmons. The lineup will also feature other veteran college football commentators during the season.

Throughout the season ESPN Radio will also be commemorating the 150th anniversary of college football as part of ESPN's multiplatform CFB150 initiative. Florida vs. Miami will mark the network's first CFB150 Showcase Game of the Week. ESPN Radio's College Football Playoff coverage plans will be announced later this season.

ESPN Radio's NFL schedule through the beginning of October features a doubleheader broadcast with coverage starting at noon and 4pm ET every Sunday beginning September 8 as the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Kansas City Chiefs followed by the Cincinnati Bengals taking on the Seattle Seahawks. The lineup also features the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots taking on the New York Jets on September 22, preceded the previous week by a rematch of last season's NFC Championship game with the Los Angeles Rams hosting the New Orleans Saints.

Each college football and NFL broadcast will be preceded by a 30-minute or one-hour pre-game show hosted by a rotating team of experts including Kevin Winter, John Brickley, Chris Villani and Jim Basquil. ESPN Radio's weekday studio programming will feature football analysts throughout the week to break down the trending topics and under-the-radar stories. On the weekends, ESPN Radio will roll out an updated 2019 lineup with a focus on college football and NFL topics.
