Former Panthers GM cheats death as car hits radio studio
Reality hit the Panthers on Sunday in the form of Von Miller and the Broncos defense.
For former Panthers general manager Marty Hurney, it was a car going through the window of his downtown radio studio while on air.
Hurney and elder Charlotte Observer columnist Tom Sorensen was discussing the loss of the Panthers and was about to go on Monday afternoon break when a car crash in a nearby corner sent one of the vehicles out the studio window to ESPN 730 The studio is in a corner near Bank of America Stadium, not far from where quarterback Cam Newton was hit by a car in 2014.
The train station audio posted of the time of the accident, which is hilarious as soon as you realize no one was hurt. In fact, you can hear Hurney asking reporter Molly Cotten if she’s okay for a few moments before sending them on hiatus.
And they realized the humor too, after the fact.
“You should have seen Sorensen run out of the room,” Hurney said via text. “Fortunately he didn’t pull a hammer.”
The identity of the driver who was almost on Hurney’s show (or who came close to ending it) is unclear, although suspects include Jake Delhomme’s 2009 contract extension and all carriers. NFL ball who were trying to get him to throw money. .
