Michael Vick Passes On Tom Joyner Appearance
August 28, 2007 at 5:45 AM (PT)
ATLANTA FALCONS quarterback MICHAEL VICK has canceled a live interview on the syndicated TOM JOYNER morning show, scheduled for this morning. JOYNER said TODAY that VICK was "very apologetic" and wanted to do the interview. But he says VICK's advisers urged him not to do the interview because he has a sentencing hearing scheduled for DECEMBER 10th.
VICK pleaded guilty yesterday to a federal dogfighting charge in RICHMOND, VA.
Plans also were to take questions from callers today. But JOYNER says VICK's advisers feared any comments he made on the radio program might be taken out of context.
JOYNER says VICK promises he will be on the program at some point. In JOYNER's words, "He will talk to black America. He knows where his support is coming from."
JOYNER had planned to talk with VICK from a studio in NORFOLK, VA.
