A sizable earthquake struck Southern California on Thursday morning, rattling everywhere from the Los Angeles-area to Las Vegas.

Colin Cowherd was among those who experienced the 6.4 magnitude quake,  but the difference was, he was live on air while doing so.  

Cowherd, who hosts “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on Fox Sports Radio and Fox Sports 1, was in the middle of his broadcast when the earthquake struck on Thursday morning — and nearly everyone in the studio froze.

“We hare having an earthquake … in Los Angeles,” Cowherd said slowly after his segment about Kawhi Leonard’s impending free agency decision was cut off.

“I thought someone was grabbing my desk,” Cowherd continued. “I’ve never been in an earthquake, certainly not on air.”


According to the Los Angeles Times. The earthquake was the largest with an epicenter in Southern California since 1999, per the report, and the first earthquake in the state with a magnitude of 6.0 or stronger in nearly five years.

Cowherd, while noticeably shook,  seamlessly transitioned into an ad read before cutting to commercial.

He’s a real PRO.
