Sportscaster Brendan Fitzgerald Joins WFXT

Sports anchor Brendan Fitzgerald is joining WFXT, the Fox O&O in Boston.

Fitzgerald, a Massachusetts native, spent the past two years at KGBT in Harlingen, TX. Prior to that, he was sports director at KCWY in Casper, WY.

“Growing up on the Cape, covering sports in Boston has been a lifelong dream of mine,” Fitzgerald said in a statement. “There’s no place like home and no place I’d rather be working than at FOX25, a station I grew up watching.”

Fitzgerald will be the evening sports anchor. He replaces Kristine Leahy, who left WFXT at the beginning of August.
