Football Tonight

Football Tonight is a sports radio program that began airing on ESPN Radio July 21, 2008, and is run each weeknight from 7- 8 pm and 10pm to 1am on Saturday evenings during football season. The one-hour show is hosted by Freddie Coleman and Jon Siebel on a rotating basis and discusses what happened in football that day. The format is similar to what is done on ESPN's NFL Live weekdays. Marc Kestacher provides the ESPN Radio SportsCenter updates every 20 minutes during the early show with Neil Jackson providing the updates on the late run.

Early shows discussed what Favre needs to do to become reinstated into the league, what contracts are being negotiated, and what stars might not even make it to training camp. Calls from the general public don't typically take place on Football Tonight. Instead, other ESPN personalities like Trey Wingo, John Clayton, Jeremy Green, and Mike Golic are brought on to provide analysis of the holdouts, contracts, and each weeks preparation, many doing double duty for Football Tonight and NFL Live on the same day. Questions that fans may want answered are encouraged to be sent to the show at footballtonight@espnradio.com.

The show, along with SportsCenter Nightly, replaced the weeknight showing of GameNight. The early show is followed by The Pulse, and the late night show is followed by SportsCenter Nightly.
