Fox NFL Sunday cast sacked from studio over COVID concerns
The Fox NFL Sunday cast will not be in studio when the network’s pregame show kicks off ahead of the Week 11 slate over COVID-19 concerns, Fox Sports announced Saturday.
So, no Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw or Michael Strahan in studio. Instead viewers will tune in to Chris Myers, Charles Woodson and Reggie Bush. Some members of the regular cast “will appear via remote,” the network said.
“In accordance with CDC guidance, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health safety guidelines – and out of an abundance of caution for our team – Sunday’s FOX NFL KICKOFF and FOX NFL SUNDAY pregame shows from our Los Angeles studio will not include their regular casts,” Fox said in a statement.
It’s unclear what precipitated the move.
Fox made a similar move earlier this month with its college football pregame crew, including analyst and former coach Urban Meyer, who announced a week later that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
