Limbaugh to join ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown:
- Hired to “provide the voice of the fan and to spark debate on the show,” according to an ESPN news release, Limbaugh makes his debut Sept. 4, the night of the NFL opener.
….”Football is like life and I know life,” Limbaugh said. “I am a big fan of the NFL and now I get to do what every football fan would love to do. I get to take my observations from the living room couch to the ESPN studios and talk football with the best journalists and players in the business.”
