This iconic trio of Howard Cosell, Frank Gifford, and Don Meredith represents the golden days of Monday Night Football. When the NFL first started broadcasting games on Monday nights in 1970, it hired Cosell, Gifford, and Meredith as announcers for the season. The combination was perfect. So perfect, in fact, that the trio continued to announce Monday Night Football games for ABC for the next several years.
