ESPN Brings Schefter and Woj Back on Big Deals

    • Adam Schefter's new deal will earn him about $45 million over 5 years.
    • Adrian Wojnarowski's new deal will earn him about $35 million over 5 years.

ESPN’s splurge on top-tier sports media personalities continues, with NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski and NFL insider Adam Schefter being the latest to re-sign with the network.

On Tuesday, the New York Post reported that Schefter ($9M) and Woj ($7M) both signed for a combined $80 million over the next five years.

The $2 million difference is partially due Schefter’s longer tenure at ESPN.

A few weeks back, ESPN bolstered its “Monday Night Football” broadcast, luring in Joe Buck and Troy Aikman from FOX Sports for a total of $165 million over five years.

The sports media giant has now spent just about $250 million on four sports media personalities.

ESPN has also spent more than $40 billion to retain media rights for the NFL and MLB, while adding others — namely the NHL this year and the SEC in 2024.
