Professionalism and Jack Bauer

So the sports correspondent, Garry Richardson, is reading the sport on BBC Radio 4. He’s still on the top story – the cricket umpire Daryll Hair’s accusations of racial discrimination by the ICC – when his phone goes off..

Probably not the first time.

But not only does he have the CTU ringtone used by Jack Bauer, he answered it live on air to see if it was Daryll Hair.

Of course it wasn’t.

Brilliant. As my sports-geek friend Paddy said, it doesn’t do much for the reputation of sports journalists. But then it can’t get much lower, can it?
