It’s been another busy week in sports media. We’re here to recap the biggest news and events that took place and share some of our best work from the week that was. Without further adieu:
Shocker: Just a week after Horowitz announced sweeping changes at Fox Sports Digital, he’s out at Fox amidst sexual harassment allegations.
Get prepared for a possibly lengthy legal battle between Fox and former FS1 head Jamie Horowitz. Horowitz’s lawyer challenged sexual harassment allegations and stated he adhered to suitable workplace conduct. In turn, Fox has also lawyered up.
Not shocking: Morale at Fox sucks. Take it from this anonymous Fox Sports staffer, who told Richard Deitsch that morale at the network was “shittier than shitty.”
“How bad is morale? Well, what is shittier than shitty?” said one Fox Sports staffer. “There are people I know who have worked at Fox Sports a long time who say it’s not the same place as before. These are people who were here before FS1. A lot of that has to do with the quality of people who were let go.”
