Adam Schefter forced to end radio interview early because his phone was blowing up with scoops
The beginning of free agency is one of the busiest times of year for NFL reporters, so it’s understandable why ESPN’s Adam Schefter was unable to complete a radio interview Wednesday. Schefter was trying to talk NFL news, rumors, scoops with ESPN Radio Chicago’s Waddle & Silvy Show, but about a minute into the interview, his phone was buzzing with scoops, so he had to end the interview early. You can hear how it all went down in the video below via Awful Announcing:
What was funny is the way he was introduced by one of the hosts. “Adam Schefter’s got some time for us …” the host began. Turns out, Schefter didn’t.
Radio is a dynamic medium so you always have to be on your toes if you’re a host or producer, and this is a perfect example why. This also gives you an idea what it’s like to be a prominent NFL reporter. They probably can’t go five minutes without being bothered by an email, phone call, or text message. Though it looks like a glorious life, this is the downside.
