End of an Era: NFL Icon Ed Werder Says Goodbye to ESPN

Published on

Ed Werder is retiring from ESPN after 26 years of reporting on the NFL, Dallas Cowboys, and other sports.

Twitter made the unexpected announcement on Thursday. Werder’s exit from “The Mother Ship”, given his intention to seek employment elsewhere, may not have been a friendly one.

Werder wrote: “I’ve had the privilege of covering the NFL and Dallas Cowboys for the past 26 years while holding the ESPN microphone. This period of time is quickly approaching an end. I will immediately begin the process of exploring other opportunities to continue my NFL coverage.”

Werder was praised for his prestigious credentials, which included his coverage of twenty consecutive Super Bowls, and his work having been commended by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, in Canton, Ohio, in 2017. The Dick McCann Award was given to him, which is the highest honor that the NFL can bestow upon a sports journalist.

He ends by suggesting that he will not delay his reporting for a long period of time.

“Ed Werder is more than I am.” This has been said by many studio hosts, and I still believe it.

Werder joined ESPN in 1998 and, according to Werder’s biography, his primary role was that of a Dallas Cowboys correspondent. During his time at ESPN, he was a regular on many NFL broadcasts, including “Sunday NFL Countdown,” Monday Night Countdown,” Sportscenter” and “NFL Live.”

Werder has left ESPN before, despite the sudden nature of his departure. In 2017, he was among the most prominent people who were terminated from the organization due to budgetary restrictions.

In 2017, the legendary reporter worked as a sideline correspondent for Westwood One’s radio broadcasts of NFL matches before returning to ESPN.

The network released a statement thanking one of its most prominent NFL correspondents.

Ed Werder, ESPN’s NFL reporter for more than 25 years, has always been there. In the statement, it is stated that “He has improved our programs such as ‘Sunday NFL Countdown’ and numerous platforms to which he contributed while reporting on signature games, Super Bowls and nearly all League events.

His journalistic instincts, and his relationships with his fans throughout the year have been beneficial to him. We thank Ed for his valuable contributions and wish him the best of luck in his future.

As a Cowboys fan growing up, it’s hard to remember a time when Werder didn’t have his trademark mustache on the sidelines.

You didn’t feel the need to question his news the vast majority of the times, as is sometimes the case with sports journalism today. He had a remarkable talent for getting inside information and would add perceptive comments to help spectators understand the implications of the game.

His next destination will be fascinating to watch. Ed Werder, after all, “has more.”
