“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. Filling in as host for both shows will be Chris Myers with analysts Charles Woodson and Reggie Bush in studio, while members of the FOX NFL SUNDAY cast will appear via remote. We look forward to the return of both casts to their regular posts soon,” Fox Sports tells OutKick.
When asked why only select members will miss the shows, a Fox Sports spokesperson said, “due to the short turnaround, we are unable to get all talent setup properly in time for Sunday’s shows.”
Multiple sources tell OutKick there was at least one positive test among the studio crew. Fox Sports would not provide further details beyond the statement.
