One of college football’s most prominent broadcasters has announced he has COVID-19. ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit made the announcement on social media Tuesday night.

Herbstreit said he will work from home for the call of the national football playoff semifinal matchup between Clemson and Ohio State Friday. While networks have started to produce broadcasts of live sporting events back on site, many broadcasts are still done from remote locations to limit potential exposure to COVID-19.
