Fox NFL Kickoff

Fox NFL Kickoff is an American sports television program that debuted on FS1 on September 8, 2013, moved to Fox Broadcasting Company on September 13, 2015, serves as the secondary pre-game show for the network's National Football League game telecasts under the NFL on Fox brand. The hour-long program – which airs Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time – focuses on news and analysis of the week's upcoming NFL games as well as interviews with NFL coaches and players, live reports from sites for the network's game telecasts, serving as an extension of Fox's primary NFL pre-game show, Fox NFL Sunday, whose own analysts appear on certain segments seen on the program. An audio simulcast of the program airs on sister radio network Fox Sports Radio, distributed by Premiere Radio Networks. On August 12, 2013, Fox Sports announced that it would launch Fox NFL Kickoff as a supplementary pre-game show to the Fox broadcast network's NFL coverage on Sundays. For its first two seasons, the program was hosted by Joel Klatt.

Urlacher left the program shortly after it began its second season on September 16, 2014, following his decision to resign from his analyst role at Fox Sports. McNabb was placed on an indefinite suspension by the sports division on July 12, 2015, following his arrest on a DUI complaint. During years when Fox holds the broadcast rights to the Super Bowl, the program is retitled Fox Super Bowl Kickoff, running as a four-hour broadcast; the program struggled in the ratings throughout its run on FS1, averaging under 100,000 viewers during the 2014 season, with its lowest viewership being recorded on the November 30 edition, which registered a paltry 28,000 viewers. On July 20, 2015, Fox Sports announced that Fox NFL Kickoff would move to the main Fox network, beginning in the 2015 NFL season. Fox asked its owned-and-operated stations and affiliates to clear the 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time hour on Sundays to run the program. Executives with the sports division cited the preference to provide a stronger lead-in for Fox NFL Sunday and by effect, result in higher initial ratings for the network’s early afternoon game telecasts.

Fox executives stated that the show would continue to utilize talent separate from that used by the network's longer established pre-game program, Fox NFL Sunday, although personalities from that program would act as contributors. In some cases it allows the network full control of up to twelve hours of programming on gameday Sunday, if an affiliate leads in Fox NFL Kickoff with the network's Sunday morning talk show, Fox News Sunday. On August 12, the division announced that former ESPN personality Colin Cowherd would join Fox Sports. On September 11, 2015, Charissa Thompson was named as the new host of the program. Former NFL player Champ Bailey was added as an analyst, with Cooper Manning added as a special contributor, conducting interviews and contributing to other special segments. In part because of the relative lateness of the announcement, Fox stations in markets totaling about 10% of the U. S. have declined to air Fox NFL Kickoff since due to existing programming commitments those to locally produced pre-game shows for local NFL franchises that have led into Fox NFL Sunday prior to the move of Kickoff to Fox or to fulfill educational and informational programming requirements, or moved it to a secondary subchannel, as WITI in Milwaukee did, moving it to their Antenna TV subchannel.

Similar to such agreements involving the network's former children's programming blocks, Fox contracted the local rights to the program to air on an affiliate of The CW or MyNetworkTV – one co-owned or co-operated with the local Fox station – in areas where a Fox owned-and-operated station or affiliate chose not to carry it. However, in some markets, Fox NFL Kickoff does not air at all; this includes a number of large markets such as Salt Lake City and New Orleans.

Bean made his major league debut with the Yankees April 26, 2005, his only appearance with the Yankees that season. In 2006, Bean started the season on the Columbus Clippers but was called up on May 20. On August 15, 2006, Bean tied the Clippers' team record for career games pitched, when he made his 212th career appearance for Columbus as the starter in a 2-1 win; the previous record had been credited to a 19th-century player.

However, modern research indicates that Jones's actual games pitched total may have been closer to 150, in which case Bean would have held the record for some time. The next-highest total behind Bean and Jones is George McQuillan credited with 204.
