The age-old saying holds true: “Husband and wife who work together, stay together.”
Esteemed sports broadcaster Joe Buck has shared a blissful marriage with his wife, ESPN star Michelle Beisner-Buck, since 2014. This dynamic couple is set to bring something truly special to Monday Night Football.
With Scott Van Pelt experiencing voice issues, ESPN has turned to Joe Buck and his wife, Michele Beisner-Buck, for the “Monday Night Football” pregame show preceding the Packers-Raiders matchup.
Van Pelt disclosed that Joe Buck, who typically does play-by-play for Monday Night Football, will host a significant portion of Monday Night Countdown. Approximately half an hour before kickoff, Joe Buck will transition to the press box, and his wife, Michelle Beisner-Buck, will take the reins. This marks the first time in ESPN’s history that a broadcast segment will be jointly hosted by a husband and wife.
Michelle Beisner-Buck initially entered the NFL scene in 1997 when she joined the Denver Broncos as a cheerleader. She later made a notable shift to television, working as a reporter for ESPN, covering the Champ Car World Series, and contributing to various sports networks such as Fox Sports, CBS, and NBC.
In 2006, Beisner-Buck joined NFL Network, assuming the roles of field reporter and studio host, showcasing her extensive experience in the field.
Joe Buck will continue to provide commentary for the Packers-Raiders game alongside Troy Aikman, as per usual.
While Scott Van Pelt anticipates a prompt return, his voice ailment underscores that even the most seasoned broadcasters occasionally encounter challenges that can’t be simply played through.
