Because of COVID-19 isolate conventions, the whole live group of Fox Sports’ school football pregame show, “Big Noon Kickoff,” will be behind closed doors this Saturday, The Post has learned.
Metropolitan Meyer, Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush, Brady Quinn and host Rob Stone will be held out of the program, which will air before the organization’s early afternoon beginning of the USC-Arizona State game.
In their place, Fox Sports will have Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Emmanuel Acho, with have Charissa Thompson. Bradshaw, Long and Thompson deal with Fox’s NFL Sunday studio inclusion, while the best in class Acho is on the day by day FS1 program, “Represent Yourself.” This Saturday’s “Big Noon Kickoff” will be consolidated from two hours to one.
In an assertion to The Post, Fox Sports said it was just holding out the team “out of plenitude of alert” and with direction from the CDC and the Los Angeles Department of Public Health’s security rules.
Fox Sports couldn’t state if any of the live telecasters had COVID-19.
