Bill Bradshaw died Thursday after a long illness, Fox said Sunday. He was 86. Terry Bradshaw was with his family in Louisiana.

Michael Strahan, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame a day earlier, will replace Bradshaw on Sunday's pregame show. Strahan, the former New York Giants defensive end, was originally scheduled to help host Fox's red carpet coverage.
