Craig James will be taping gratuitous workout segments this autumn, on his ranch with someone’s phone. SI.com’s Richard Deitsch is reporting the former ESPN fixture was let go by Fox Sports Southwest after just one appearance (hiring announced on Friday). Executives at the parent company nixed the deal.
Fox Sports executives were not happy with the hire by the regional network, according to sources, and the hire had not been fully vetted at the highest levels of Fox Sports management. A formal agreement had not been finalized, even though James appeared on FSS on Saturday night. “Craig James will not be making any further appearances on Fox Sports Southwest’s football coverage this season,” said a Fox Sports spokesperson, when asked for a comment.
James was, apparently, a bit too jockular for their tastes. We would like “Celebrity Apprentice” in the Craig James’ next TV job pool.
