“At ESPN, they were very impressed that I played lacrosse because it was just starting to be televised and they didn’t have a lot of guys on the play-by-play side who knew the sport,” McAnaney said in a 2012 interview with UND.com. “It was a huge opportunity in my career.”
ESPN covered more than 100 college lacrosse games across its various channels — including ESPN3, an online streaming platform — in 2016. Anish Shroff, Mike Corey, John Brickley, Booker Corrigan, and Mark Dixon also handled play-by-play duties throughout the season. Ryan Boyle, Matt Ward, Ryan Flanagan, Sheehan Stanwick Burch, and Dixon occasionally served as analysts. ESPN has not yet released its 2017 lacrosse broadcast schedule.
