Heather Childers, an anchor for “Fox & Friends First,” misspoke Tuesday morning, announcing in the second hour of the morning show that:

“The UConn Huskies are the 2014 NAACP national champs.”

Childers correctly said “NCAA,” which stands for National Collegiate Athletic Association, on her next reference. The NAACP is the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.


After spending most of her career in traditional print sports journalism, Cindy began blogging and tweeting, first as NFL/Redskins editor, and, since August 2010, at The Early Lead. She also is the social media editor for Sports.
