I’ve wondered this as they are not the first to do that. Looking at his name it’s not even that hard to pronounce it’s said how it’s spelt.

No, it's pronounced as it's spelled, Ek-pi-tet-a and people (especially those in broadcasting) should make the effort to pronounce his name correctly as they should any other. It's not that hard.
Agree completely. Especially commentators, they should learn how names etc are pronounced.
It's an insult to mis-pronounce a persons surname when broadcasting games etc.
It's just being rude.
