Fox has made a surprise decision and allowed one of their biggest sportscasters, Joe Buck, to sign a deal with BP and broadcast their live feed of the oil spill.
Buck has been a broadcaster for several years and has brought life to television sets around the world when sports are on the air. Whether it is baseball or football or now even an oil spill, Joe Buck has got it covered.
A spokesperson for BP said, "We have millions of people watching our live feed of the Gulf Coast oil spill, but there is no sound or means of entertainment. Joe Buck brings that to the table and will be doing a play-by-play of the event. Hopefully this brings more viewers to the live feed and provides them with more entertainment and knowledge on the topic."
Joe Buck was introduced at a press conference where he was wearing a white shirt and a BP green jacket. He smiled and spoke kindly to reporters during his introduction.
Before Buck spoke, the CEO of BP, Tony Hayward, announced that the company has signed Joe Buck to a $2,000 per day contract. This could be great money for Joe Buck if the spill lasts a while, but bad for the Gulf Coast and America.
