Laker Tapped to Call ESPN’s ‘Monday Night Football’ Games
ESPN sportscaster Steve Levy ’87 was named the new play-by-play commentator for Monday Night Football.
A communication studies alumnus, Steve joined ESPN in August 1993 as a SportsCenter anchor and emerged as one of ESPN’s leading play-by-play commentators for his work on college football, NFL, NHL and the XFL.
A loyal alumnus, he has frequently returned to campus to speak to students via the Alumni-In-Residence program and as a Dr. Lewis B. O’Donnell Media Summit panelist, the Commencement Eve Torchlight Ceremony speaker and emcee, and the emcee of the With Passion and Purpose campaign launch, The Tomorrow Show.
He provided the naming gift for the Steve Levy ’87 Press Box in the Marano Campus Center Arena. He also established the Steve Levy ’87 Endowed Broadcasting Internship Fund to offset the cost of tuition credits and living expenses for broadcasting students who demonstrate initiative and interest in the field and who would not otherwise be able to afford to take on an internship.
