T pregame show debuted 22 years ago. Since, it has thrived as the king of the Sunday morning pregame shows while the cast has grown into a family. Fox NFL Sunday averaged more viewers than any other NFL pregame morning show last year. And through marriages, child births, illnesses and life in general, Howie Long, Terry Bradshaw, Michael Strahan, Jimmy Johnson, Jay Glazer and Curt Menefee have become more than just co-workers. In an ever-changing media landscape with more platforms than ever, the longevity and continuity of the group, which has worked together for 15-plus years, are abnormal.
Terry Bradshaw, a Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and one of the co-hosts on Fox NFL Sunday, revealed Sunday on air that he has battled cancer twice in the last year. Bradshaw had an incident during the pregame show last week and addressed them on Sunday’s episode before the rest of the schedule kicked off.
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.
