An ESPN reporter abruptly exited an interview on Friday with a Chicago radio station after appearing to experience technical issues.

Courtney Cronin, who covers the Bears for the network, was invited onto ESPN Chicago’s ‘Kap & J. Hood Morning Show’ to discuss Caleb Williams, who Chicago may decide to take with the No. 1 overall pick in next month’s NFL Draft.

But as Cronin began to speak about Williams’ press conference at the NFL Combine, her audio loudly echoed.

That led her to take out her wired headphones and say ‘alright, f*** this’ out of frustration, and she was off the station’s feed right after.

As noted by Awful Announcing, it’s unclear whether Cronin ended the video feed herself or if ESPN Chicago took her off the air after her expletive.

Cronin first covered the Vikings for ESPN before shifting over to the Bears.

She joined the network in 2017.

Williams is the presumptive No. 1 pick, but it remains to be seen if the Bears will trade down and stick with Justin Fields or move forward with the USC passer.

Williams has decided to decline the medical exams given to participants at the combine, and has also refused to share his health records with all 32 league teams.

He’s believed to be the first person in history to decline the physical exam at the league’s combine.

Williams had previously also declined to take part in the on-field workouts associated with the combine, waiting for his Pro Day at USC to show off his skills.

USC’s Pro Day is scheduled for March 20.
