Layoffs and Restructuring at Fox Sports Ohio

Posted By on Fri, May 29, 2015 at 6:09 PM

Fox Sports Ohio has never really known what it wanted to be, and despite a healthy roster of talent at times, it never really broke through the traffic jam of folks covering sports in Northeast Ohio. That being said, it did boast some talented reporters, among them Zac Jackson, who told us today that he was told by FSO his last day on the job would be June 30.

A second source confirmed that it wasn't just the Akron and Swenson's aficionado who was let go — the cuts were across the board and not limited to Jackson or the NFL. Folks talked of some vague restructuring by FSO (whose bosses don't seem to talk to their employees much, except when they're axing them, so those details are still up in the air.)

Also, we've heard similar conversations have been happening with staff in other Fox regional outfits.

Surely Zac and the others will land on their feet. Go hire them.
