    Who Are the Announcers for the National Championship Game?

    ESPN is deploying their leading announcers for the National Championship Game with Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit in the booth.

    The pair are synonymous with college football and the National Championship Game, with the broadcasting pair having called every final since the CFP era began in 2014.

    Fowler and Herbstreit will be joined on the broadcast by seasoned and distinguished reporters Holly Rowe and Milly McGrath on the sidelines. It is expected that Rowe and McGrath will be on opposing sidelines.

    Herbstreit has become one of the legendary broadcasters in college football and is fresh from being inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame. It will also round off a busy few days for Fowler, who is also calling The Steelers at the Ravens on Saturday, January 6.

    The pair called the CFP semifinal at the Rose Bowl, where Michigan defeated Alabama 27-20 in overtime to book their spot in the National Championship Game.

    If you aren’t in front of a screen for the National Championship Game, you can listen on ESPN Radio, where Sean McDonough, Greg McElroy, Ian Fitzsimmons, and Kris Budden will be on hand to guide you through the action. It is McDonough’s sixth year as the lead voice of the CFP final.
