Adam Schefter’s Ringtone Causes A Hilarious Live TV Mishap
During a live telecast on Saturday, the ESPN crew were having discussions with Matt Hasselback over a virtual call when Schefter’s phone started to ring. The NFL insider is known to have his phone around him at all times since he loves to stay on top of all the breaking news and updates. He is often known to excuse himself during live TV to respond to a call or a text.
However, this Saturday things took a turn for a comical fun. During the live telecast, Schefter’s phone started going off with Anita Ward’s Ring My Bell playing loudly. It left the crew in splits who could not hold it together. Adam Schefter kept denying that it wasn’t his ringtone. The entire desk including Matt Hasselback was seen laughing at Schefter and his ringtone.
This is really funny.

American sports commentator, Samantha Steele Ponder did not believe Schefter at all. She tweeted calling out Adam Schefter for lying about his ringtone but the tweet was deleted shortly after. But nothing escapes the internet.
Twitterati was intrigued as to why was Schefter lying about his ringtone when clearly everyone already heard it. ESPN senior insider Adrian Wojnarowski also reacted to the video stating “he does” have that ringtone.
“I don’t have that ringtone!” (Yes he does)
