Bally Sports Restructuring Ends in Layoffs for National Desk Staff

Aug 25, 2023

Bally Sports eliminated its national desk, a decision that cost most of the employees on it their jobs.

Eight employees were informed of the cuts on Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the situation told Front Office Sports. The move was part of a new localized video strategy for the embattled regional sports network.

The layoffs included multiple veteran managers and writers who were hired in the years since Sinclair Broadcast Group’s heavily leveraged $9.6 billion purchase of the RSNs became official in August 2019.
