FSN continues to push forward as a premier source for football information with the full-time addition of former New York Post NFL writer Jay Glazer. Among the top football reporters in the country, Glazer has a history of getting the scoop before others even know there’s a story brewing.
Glazer, who had been working for FSN part-time, is now available full-time to offer his expertise across numerous FSN programs including BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW, PERIOD; FOX SPORTS NET ACROSS AMERICA; TOTALLY FOOTBALL; and ULTIMATE FANTASY FOOTBALL SHOW. The FSN regional networks also turn to Glazer for information as he joins them weekly, updating stories that most affect local NFL teams.
Additionally, Glazer will also provide late-breaking news on Sunday mornings, joining Terry, J.B., Howie and Jimmy as a contributor to FOX NFL SUNDAY, America’s most-watched NFL pregame show.
“I’m really thrilled about working with Fox Sports Net. I now have a daily national platform to break NFL news,” said Glazer. “This past NFL postseason, I was excited at the number of players and coaches who approached me saying how much they liked TOTALLY FOOTBALL and BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW, PERIOD. I wanted to be a part of that full-time.”
Glazer’s hard work and honest reporting has catapulted him into the top tier of NFL reporters. It was Glazer who first reported that 10 NFL players were subpoenaed as part of the BALCO investigation, and that they were secretly tested by the league. Weeks later, it was Glazer who revealed the names of the four Oakland Raiders who tested positive for the controversial drug THG.
Glazer was the first to report that Keyshawn Johnson was placed on the inactive list by Tampa Bay. He reported the firing of New York Giants’ coach Jim Fassel while Fassel was telling his team he had been let go. It was Glazer who reported on the eve of the Super Bowl that Oakland Raiders lineman Barrett Robbins disappeared in Tijuana the week of the game and eventual deactivation.
“The addition of Jay Glazer to Fox Sports Net’s full time roster gives us the country’s preeminent pro football insider. Jay immediately brings the best NFL information to all of the network’s relevant programs,” said George Greenberg, Executive Vice President of Programming and Production. “Joining FSN allows Jay to utilize his close connections with league officials, teams and especially players to break the biggest stories in pro football every day and we will showcase his top-notch reporting accordingly.”
Glazer will continue to host Unnecessary Roughness for Fox Sports Net affiliate Madison Square Garden Network.
Prior to joining FSN, Glazer covered the NFL for CBS SportsLine and was an insider on CBS Sports’ The NFL Today program. He made his name as an NFL writer for the New York Post and gained large market television experience as an on-air commentator for WCBS-TV in New York, as a host of Inside the Red Zone on the MSG network, as an on-air studio analyst for the New York Giants pregame show on WNYW-TV in New York City and as a NFL insider/reporter for NY 1 TV from 1993 to 1998.
Born Dec. 26, 1969, Glazer earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in mass media from Pace University in New York in 1992. He is single and lives in New York.
