Matthew Berry Left ESPN For NBC Monday Night Analyst
Before the start of the NFL season in 2022, ESPN plans to make significant changes to the fantasy football products and services it offers.
The most notable change is that owners of fantasy football teams will no longer be able to locate Matthew Berry's analysis on the website or any of the other digital channels offered by the network. According to Berry's announcement through Twitter, his 15-year tenure with ESPN has ended.
The ESPN personality who has been the public face of fantasy football for many years has announced that he will depart the network at the end of this week. It is still unclear who will assist in replacing Berry at ESPN in the job that he previously had.
The network owns a large stable of fantasy authors, on which it has come to rely more over the past several years.
The network revealed that Berry would join NBC as its new fantasy commentator across all digital platforms. He made his debut on NBC during the "Football Night in America" coverage of the Hall of Fame Game, which saw the Jaguars and Raiders competing against one other. The game took place in Canton, Ohio.
Berry validated the information in a video post on his official Twitter account. NBC Sports already has a significant influence on fantasy football. By adding Berry, who got his start in the industry at Rotoworld, they will be able to have even more impact in the world of fantasy.
