Beginning Saturday, Sept. 3, ESPN Radio will roll out a new fall weekend lineup with a focus on the 2016 college football and NFL seasons featuring some of the most experienced and knowledgeable voices in the game. Two new programs will be added, including the three-hour McNabb & Custer, hosted by former NFL quarterback and MAXX Client Donovan McNabb and veteran Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Brian Custer, premiering Sunday, Sept. 11, at 10 p.m. ET, or immediately following Sunday Night Baseball. The lineup will be in place until the end of the football season.
On Sundays, MAXX Client Domonique Foxworth, a former NFL cornerback and current contributor to The Undefeated, will pair with ESPN Chicago 1000’s Jonathan Hood on NFL Nation, wrapping up the day’s NFL action and featuring ESPN NFL Nation writers who were at the biggest games.
McNabb joins ESPN Radio having played thirteen seasons as an NFL quarterback for three different teams – the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings. Drafted second overall by the Eagles in the 1999 NFL Draft, McNabb was named to six Pro Bowls during his extensive career, and garnered an NFC Offensive Player of the Year honor as well as the NFC Player of the Year accolade in 2004. That same year, he led the Eagles to Super Bowl XXXIX. He has previously worked as a television game analyst for the NFL Network and Fox Sports, as well as a studio analyst for FS1.
Foxworth is a former NFL cornerback who played for three teams – the Denver Broncos, Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens. In 2012, he became one of the youngest players to be elected president of the NFLPA. He was drafted 97th in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Broncos. Throughout his professional career, Foxworth was involved in charitable projects in the community. In Denver, he took a leadership role working with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America to fund raise and plan the creation of the Darrent Williams Memorial Center – a center named in honor of his murdered Broncos teammate to provide scholastic retreat for teens. In 2010, the Baltimore Sun presented Foxworth with its first Tim Wheatley Award for community service for the Baltimore BORN initiative designed to provide lower income boys in local high schools with resources and networking opportunities. After retiring from professional football, Foxworth attended and was graduated from Harvard Business School (2013-15). In 2014, the NBA’s Players Association executive director Michele Roberts named Foxworth the Chief Operating Officer of the NBAPA.
