CFP National Championship 2021: ESPN’s Ed Placey on the Evolution of MegaCast, Solving Logistical Challenges of COVID-19

Ohio State and Alabama will meet in tonight’s CFP National Championship Game in Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, and ESPN is deploying its seventh consecutive MegaCast presentation. Ranging from the traditional broadcast and analytical side of the game with Film Room to home-centric calls on Hometown Radio and multiple alternative viewing methods, the network is once again laying out a smorgasbord of content.

SVG’s Kristian Hernandez caught up with ESPN Senior Coordinating Producer Ed Placey to preview the 14 viewing options of this year’s MegaCast, break down the history and evolution of this massive project, discuss the planning that went into the final game of the season, and reflect on the tremendous production feats of the college football schedule.
