Terry Bradshaw F-Bomb: Fox Sports 1 Issues Apology
An off-the-cuff remark by Terry Bradshaw proved to be a headache for Fox Sports 1.
During a commercial break Friday on the network, Bradshaw was walking beside Jimmie Johnson and dropped an F-bomb expletive into a remark. The network, which launched as an ESPN competitor in August, swiftly issued an apology for airing the comment.
"Fox Sports apologizes for the inadvertent and inappropriate language heard during a commercial break on Friday's edition of Fox Football Daily on Fox Sports 1," the statement read.
"The personalities in the studio, including Terry Bradshaw, were unaware that we'd be going to the set live at that time. We apologize to Terry and viewers who unfortunately heard the comments. We are reviewing our procedures to make sure this does not happen again," it added.
On Friday, Fox Sports 1 also compiled a roundup of bloopers from its first few weeks entitled "Fox Football Faily's."
