Update: Paul Finebaum doing better after leaving mid-show
Viewers of “The Paul Finebaum Show” noticed Tuesday that host Paul Finebaum did not seem 100 percent.
Andrew Bucholtz of Awful Announcing captured various clips of Tuesday’s show in which Finebaum was quieter than normal. In a segment going over the day’s headlines, there was dead air before show producers stepped in and started addressing Finebaum.
Bucholtz also recorded a call with Jim from Tuscaloosa in which Finebaum was uncharacteristically quiet, with Jim himself somewhat surprised by the host’s lack of responses.
The show cut to a six-minute commercial break at 3:50 p.m. ET. When it returned, several minutes of Mondays show were replayed before Peter Burns was in the host’s seat saying he was filling in for Finebaum.
Saturday Down South joins the rest of the SEC community in hoping that Paul Finebaum is feeling well.
ESPN communications says that Finebaum is “already doing better.” He left and went home after not feeling well.
