Fox Sports Wins Battle with NFL Network Over Jay Glazer

Jay-Glazer-hooters-girlsJay Glazer, the scoop-happy Fox Sports NFL reporter who had also been working for the NFL Network for the last few years, has been locked up exclusively by Fox and given a 5-day a week talk show, multiple sources tells me.

A source tells me the NFL Network made a play to steal Glazer from Fox Sports recently, and made him a lucrative offer that essentially forced him to make a decision: The NFL Network or Fox.

Another source said Glazer was close to leaving Fox for the NFL Network – which was also offering him a TV show – but Glazer’s ability to move between MMA and the NFL on Fox was the deciding factor. Glazer signed a hefty multi-year deal that will lock him up at Fox for years to come.

Glazer, who has a few months left on his NFL Network contract, didn’t return a twitter direct message seeking comment.

A source said his Fox football show is expected to debut in August, but the format and title are not determined.
