Michael Hiestand Takes Buyout, Leaves USA Today

Michael Hiestand is leaving USA Today after 24 years. According to the Sherman Report, Hiestand has accepted a buyout from the paper. Hiestand said that he decided it was time to try something new.

“The people at USA Today do a good job. There are some good people there. But I’m ready to try some new things. You just want to figure out, ‘What is the right niche for me?’ Having the buyout will give me a little bit of time. It gives me some time away from the everyday deadlines.”

Hiestand’s last column ran Friday.

NFL on Fox Analyst Calls Off Las Vegas Show

For years now, NFL on Fox analyst and former quarterback Terry Bradshaw has dreamed of starring in his own one-man show in Las Vegas.

That dream appears to be over as Bradshaw called off the project, days before he was scheduled to start rehearsal.

“I don’t have the energy, having traveled to (Fox’s Los Angeles studio) every week,” Bradshaw told Michael Hiestand of USA Today.  ”It was a project three years in the making. I’m tired.”

Bradshaw, 63, threatened at one point that he would come out “in a spandex thong thing to get the crowd going.”

I think the entire city of Las Vegas just dodged a bullet.
