Despite being media member, Randy Moss says to not call him part of media


If one was to work on Fox Sports, traveling around to interview players all while providing their thoughts and insights on the league, you’d consider them part of the ‘media’, right? I mean, it only makes sense.

That’s the job of recently hired Fox Sports analyst Randy Moss, who despite being part of the media doesn’t want to be referred to as a media member. In fact, Moss would prefer you refer to him as ‘FOX Football Daily and our Sunday show analyst’. Yeah, I’m not kidding.

Per SI.com:

“I don’t like that term,” Moss says, on the phone from FOX’s studios in Los Angeles. “I just like being called part of FOX Football Daily and our Sunday show. I am not part of the media. That’s not my label, and I don’t want it to start now. I love the game of football, and this is just a new way for me to be part of the game. Everything from the makeup to the studio to the lights, camera, action, I am enjoying everything. I like to adventure out and learn new things, and this gives me the opportunity to keep learning.”

Straight media, homey.
