So, what happened to First Things First on Fox Sports? Keep reading to get the 4-1-1.
Fans believe that 'First Things First' is currently on pause due to the hosts going on vacation.
Once a show stops airing, it’s easy for fans to believe that there is some trouble behind the scenes. But, when it comes to Fox Sports’s First Things First, nothing out of the ordinary appears to be going on.
While some fans initially believed that the show may be up for cancellation, one Twitter user has shifted the conversation.
In response to a fan inquiring about Nick Wright’s return to the show, Twitter user @MikeSto58237740 shared his belief that Nick Wright and Jenna Wolfe are currently on vacation.
While it may seem a bit premature to assume that the hosts are on vacation, Jenna's past absences can serve as proof.
In June 2021, Jenna Wolfe noticeably had a three-day absence from the show. And while many fans believed that Jenna left the show, she quickly cleared things up via Twitter. She explained to fans that she was simply on vacation.
So, it proves that the hosts may just need some R&R to come back ready and able to give fans the sports content that they love. After all, everyone needs a break.
Fox Sports’s ‘First Things First’ appears to be on a temporary hiatus, according to the network's programming schedule.
