ESPN Agrees to Contract Extension with Rick Reilly

ESPN has reached an agreement with popular columnist and television contributor Rick Reilly on a multi-year contract extension. Reilly, who joined ESPN in 2008 after 23 years at Sports Illustrated, will continue to write his weekly "Life of Reilly" columns for ESPN.com and contribute television essays through his on-site coverage of ESPN's Monday Night Football and other major events.

Reilly will travel to the site of each week's MNF game, appearing on both the Monday Night Countdown pre-game (6:30 p.m. ET) and the post-game SportsCenter alongside Stuart Scott, Trent Dilfer, Ray Lewis and Steve Young. Each week, he will prepare a MNF-themed segment for Countdown. In 2012, his thoughtful television features ran the gamut from poignant to humorous.

The 11-time National Sportswriter of the Year and successful author will also be part of ESPN's coverage of golf majors and the Ryder Cup, NBA Finals, NCAA Final Four, FIFA World Cup, Super Bowl and BCS Championship events.

"Rick is one of the most accomplished writers of his generation, and we look forward to his continued great work on our networks and across ESPN digital platforms," said ESPN President John Skipper.

Added Reilly: "I'm thrilled to carry on at a place that loves good writing and good storytelling whether it's televised, printed, posted, broadcast, streamed, blogged, tweeted, pinged, binged, or quilted."
