CBS' La Canfora Misses Pregame Show To Be With Injured Wife
CBS’ Jason La Canfora was absent from the net's NFL pregame coverage today after his wife, Lauren, was a victim of a hit-and-run accident. Both CBS and CBSSN mentioned the incident during telecasts today, with CBS' James Brown saying La Canfora was not appearing in his usual spot because he was at the hospital with his wife. Brown: "Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their family" (“The NFL Today," CBS, 9/15). La Canfora said that the accident occurred on Friday while his wife was "jogging near their Baltimore County neighborhood" (BALTIMORESUN.com, 9/14).
