Michele Tafoya appeared on The Dan Le Batard Show last week and was not happy how it turned out. The former sideline reporter would soon appear on Fox News and complained about the way she was treated by Le Batard’s show without naming them.
“I was invited with this, ‘We want to talk about your great career and your new podcast. Is it O.K. if we talk to you for about 30 or 40 minutes?’ said Tafoya on Fox. “It was someone I knew from my past, so I said O.K.
“The second I got on, I was ambushed with ‘You’re anti-CRT. You’re a racist. You can’t read the Florida law without being a homopho—.’ I was absolutely ambushed.”
Tafoya said she agreed to do the Miami-based podcast because it was “someone I knew from my past.”
In the above video, Le Batard introduced Tafoya to the show, saying “I have had nothing but cordial experiences with her, but I have read recently that you have been on the dark side, secretly on the dark side.”
At one point, Le Batard said “I think I’m in the middle and you think you are in the middle and I’m looked at as far left and you’re looked at as far right? When all I look at is — man, our leadership everywhere stinks. The Republicans seem ruthless to me and the Democrats seem weak and none of them represent me.”
Tafoya worked at NBC Sports, from 2011-22, primarily as a sideline reporter for “Sunday Night Football.”
She currently hosts the “Sideline Sanity” podcast, in which she interviews guests, including politicians and sports figures, to discuss world topics.
