Son of Fox Sports Broadcaster Dies in Car Crash

Christopher Myers, the 19-year-old-son of Fox Sports anchor Chris Myers, was killed in a fatal car accident Thursday in Southern California.

“It is with tremendous sadness that the FOX Sports family acknowledges the passing of Christopher Myers, 19, son of NASCAR on FOX studio host Chris Myers,” Fox Sports media relations manager Eddie Motl said in a statement.

The NASCAR on Fox studio host will miss the Daytona 500 next weekend and SPEED studio host John Roberts will assume Myers’ responsibilities.

The network is giving Myers as much time off as he needs.
