We’ve always wondered what could help propel Fox Sports 1 in front of ESPN?
How about breaking sports, mixed with gossip and tantalizing details?
In a move that will further change the landscape of “sports reporting” as we know it, TMZ Sports and Fox Sports 1 have teamed up on a breaking new series to be featured on the network.
“TMZ Sports offers a window into the world where sport and celebrity cultures intersect — whether at a party, movie premiere or an ordinary day,” said Jamie Horowitz, president of Fox Sports National Networks. “To both avid and casual sports fans, these stories are captivating.”
“We’re incredibly excited to be on FS1,” TMZ Executive President Harvey Levin said. “We’re hoping our show adds a new dimension to sports coverage, and this network feels like the perfect place to park our humor, irreverence and news gathering.”
TMZ SPORTS premieres on FS1 on the heels of the addition of Colin Cowherd and his FS1/FOX Sports Radio program, and journalist Jason Whitlock, launching a new era of opinion-oriented programming at FOX Sports as well.
