Fox Sports will not air any live coverage of the national anthem during its Sunday football broadcasts.
The decision came from Fox Sports President Eric Shanks, who claims the network makes it a policy to avoid airing any pre-game ceremonies live because of an agreement with their sponsors.
“The standard procedure is not to show [the anthem] because of the way the commercial format works and the timing of the anthem to get to the kickoff,” Shanks told media. “So I think we’re going to pay attention to events.”
