Congratulations to ESPN's Dan Le Batard for getting engaged to his girlfriend recently.

But it wasn't Le Batard who revealed the news on social media or his shows. It was a scoop from Miami Herald writer Greg Cote:

Le Batard, former Miami Herald sports columnist, has not yet announced his engagement publicly on either of his ESPN platforms, the Dan Le Batard Show With Stugotz or Highly Questionable, both taped on South Beach. But sources close to the couple tell us Le Batard popped the question during a recent vacation in Kenya and Tanzania, a safari organized by Zoo Miami's Ron Magill, a weekly regular on Dan's radio show.

Thanks to The Big Lead, we have footage of Le Batard on his morning radio show reacting to the story, which was read to him. He says Cote had been "threatening" to report his engagement and he told the reporter not to print it:

And here's what Le Batard's phone looked like Thursday morning:
