 ESPN's secondary "Monday Night Football" broadcast booth is getting a shakeup.

 Chris Fowler will replace Steve Levy as the network's No. 2 play-by-play announcer for "Monday Night Football," a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they aren’t authorized to discuss.

 Fowler is expected to join analysts Louis Riddick and Dan Orlovsky in the secondary "MNF" broadcast booth, behind the network's top NFL broadcast team of Troy Aikman and Joe Buck. The No. 2 crew will call five "MNF" games during the 2023-24 season − including an opening weekend doubleheader, Week 18 doubleheader and international games on ESPN+ – as part of the network's new league media deal that kicks in this season.

 Fowler's latest gig is part of the new deal he signed.

 He's also ESPN's lead college football play-by-play announcer alongside analyst Kirk Herbstreit, in addition to the network's lead announcer for tennis coverage featured on ESPN, including the Australian Open and U.S. Open. Although Fowler has called NFL games with Herbstreit before, Fowler won't be partnered with Herbstreit because he serves as a color commentator for Amazon Prime Video's "Thursday Night Football."

 Buck and Aikman will remain the network's lead broadcast team after the duo moved from Fox Sports last season to ESPN to take over the prime-time spot.

 “It's a challenge with a very bright spotlight on you as you try and figure out your new work environment in front of tens of millions of people on live TV,” Buck said at the time. “But that's fun. That's what this business is all about.”

 Levy, who spent two seasons as MNF's primary play-by-play announcer from 2020-2021, also leads ESPN's NHL coverage.
