In addition, Esiason serves as an analyst on INSIDE THE NFL on SHOWTIME, as well as a contributor on NFL MONDAY QB on the CBS Sports Network.

Upon retiring after the 1997 season, Esiason headed straight to the broadcast booth. He made his debut as a commentator for ABC's NFL "Monday Night Football," and called "MNF" games for two years. He called games for Westwood One Radio Sports "Monday Night Football" broadcasts for 18 seasons (2000-2017), teaming with Marv Albert and Kevin Harlan for eight years each.

To date, the foundation has raised $200 million.

She is also an ambassador for the website www.shoppingforachange.org, which advocates for fair trade and improving the lives of women all over the world.

Ruah was born in Boston but moved to Portugal at age 5 with her family. She is fluent in Portuguese.
