UPDATE 09/2014: Can’t you imagine Roger Goodell’s wife Jane Skinner feeling the journalist urge at the breakfast table?
The biggest story to hit the NFL in years has put Roger Goodell right in the crosshairs. After retiring from her job as a Fox News broadcaster in 2010, you know Goodell’s wife wants an exclusive interview. In the wake of the Ray Rice fiasco, Goodell has sat for one major interview, which flopped in the court of public opinion. You know Jane Skinner just leers across the table at him thinking “you saw the tape, didn’t you?”
I’m just spitballin’ here, but play this out. Let’s pretend Goodell is on the brink of being fired – he chooses one person for a sit down interview, and elects his wife to perform it. While Goodell is sent home for a while, this could relaunch Skinner’s career. It’s a brilliant move!
I’ll take a 5% finders fee on this idea. Thanks, Commish.
Roger Goodell is married to former Fox News broadcaster, Jane Skinner. In 2010, Jane announced on air that she was retiring from broadcasting, citing a desire to be closer to her family. The Goodell/Skinner power duo has twin daughters, and resides in Westchester, NY.
Jane Skinner has worked at multiple television stations as a general reporter across the country including stops in St. Louis, Milwaukee, Portland, ME and New York City. She ultimately finished her career as the host of Happening Now, a midday talk show on Fox News.
