NFL Live is a National Football League studio show, currently airing Monday through Friday at 4:00 p.m ET ESPN. Formerly known as NFL 2Night, the program is one of the only NFL-related studio programs to air during the week along with NFL Insiders. As such, NFL Live is not a highlight show, as Sunday and Monday game highlights are handled by the various other NFL studio shows, including NFL Primetime during the season. Unlike shows for other sports, NFL Live even runs throughout the entire offseason.

Since 2005, NFL Live has been presented in high definition on ESPNHD.

Beginning in 2011, NFL Live expanded to a full hour.

Personalities[edit]

Trey Wingo hosts NFL Live with various analysts. Contributors include John Clayton and Chris Mortensen, and reporters Ed Werder and Sal Paolantonio among others.
