Report: Entire Fox Sports pregame crew out because of COVID-19 protocol

The entire on-air crew of Fox Sports’ college football pregame show, “Big Noon Kickoff,” will be at home instead of on the air this Saturday because of COVID-19 quarantine protocols, according to the New York Post.

Urban Meyer, Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush, Brady Quinn and host Rob Stone will be off the broadcast this week and will be replaced by Fox Sports’ NFL crew.

Fox Sports has not confirmed whether anyone on the show has contracted the coronavirus.

From the New York Post:

“In their place, Fox Sports will have Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Emmanuel Acho, with host Charissa Thompson. Bradshaw, Long and Thompson work on Fox’s NFL Sunday studio coverage, while the up-and-coming Acho is on the daily FS1 program, “Speak for Yourself.” This Saturday’s “Big Noon Kickoff” will be condensed from two hours to one.

In a statement to The Post, Fox Sports said it was only holding out the crew “out of abundance of caution” and with guidance from the CDC and the Los Angeles Department of Public Health’s safety guidelines.”
