Rich Eisen says mobile production unit for his show was stolen

Wednesday November 12th, 2014

It has been a rough day for NFL Network anchor Rich Eisen. Eisen, who hosts "The Rich Eisen Show," tweeted on Wednesday that the satellite truck scheduled to produce his show for Thursday had been stolen. He later clarified that it was actually a "mobile production unit," not a satellite truck, but that's still a problem. 

At least Eisen seems to be handling things in stride.

It seems utterly bizarre that a truck which is useful to so few people would be stolen, but perhaps there is a burgeoning black market for stolen television production equipment. 

Hopefully they find a replacement before Thursday's show. 


It turns out the story has a happy ending. Eisen tweeted later Wednesday that the truck was safely recovered.
