Chris Evans Late For Own BBC Radio 5 Live Golf Show
April 11, 2011 at 4:11 AM (PT)
AC BBC RADIO 2 morning host CHRIS EVANS was supposed to host coverage of the MASTERS golf tournament on sister Talk BBC RADIO 5 LIVE at 9p SATURDAY night, but he wasn't there for the start of the show. The BBC reported that EVANS apologized after arriving almost a half-hour late for the show, saying that he forgot what time the show was to start.
"I apologize profusely," EVANS said. "I ran in from where I was -- well, I did the AUGUSTA shuffle." He told his co-hosts that he didn't know the show started at 9 and that he "was in the foyer having a water and a chat."
The BBC characterized the incident as a "pure misunderstanding."
