Paul Finebaum suffered some kind of medical ailment live on-air during his show Tuesday and had to leave abruptly.

ESPN's Paul Finebaum, who hosts an afternoon radio show dedicated to college football, had to abruptly leave the set of his show while live on-air on Tuesday. Finebaum, who seemed a bit off in the minutes prior to the incident, cut off a caller mid-speech. When ESPN came back to the program, Peter Burns was on-set instead.

Awful Announcing also obtained a quote from an ESPN spokesperson. Finebaum is reportedly "fine" after the incident.

"Paul is fine. He wasn’t feeling well. He went home for the day and is already feeling better."

Let's hope Finebaum truly is fine. He's one of the best in the business when it comes to college football coverage.
