(Fox News) – Fox Sports NASCAR analyst Darrell Waltrip has announced that
he will retire at the end of the network’s broadcast season.

Waltrip was a member of the Fox Sports NASCAR team when it first went on
the air in 2001, when he helped call the
Daytona 500 that was won by his
brother Michael, but is mostly remembered for the last-lap accident that
took the life of Dale Earnhardt.

Fox Sports CEO & executive producer Eric Shanks said “Darrell has been
the heart and soul of the Fox NASCAR booth since day one, so it’s incredibly bittersweet to know this is his final season.”

Waltrip, a 3-time series champion, said he has been talking about the decision
with his family for several months.

IT WAS A CODE OF ETHICS FOR TELEVISION


The Code of Practices for Television Broadcasters, also known as the
Television Code, was a set of ethical standards adopted by the
National
Association of Broadcasters
(NAB) for television programming from
1952 to 1983. The code was created to self-regulate the industry in
hopes of avoiding a proposed government Advisory Board and
satisfying parental concerns over violence and other matters. Prior
to the Television Code, the 1935 NAB Code of Ethics for radio was
applied to television but fewer than half of TV stations subscribed to
it; when the Television Code was first issued, two-thirds of stations
became subscribers.
