Myers spent ten years (1988-1998) at ESPN, hosting SportsCenter, Baseball Tonight and other shows.

While at ESPN Myers coined popular phrases such as "That deserves a 'Wow'" and "I kid because I care". He was also the first to use the term "3-ball" when describing a 3-point shot in basketball and "a hoop and some harm" when describing a basket and foul. Myers introduced the phrase "a fresh set of downs" while doing play-by-play for football.

Currently, Fox holds exclusive rights to carry the Daytona 500 in the United States, under the terms of contract extensions that run through the 2024 NASCAR season.
