FiOS1 News Sports Reporter Gets Not One, But Two New Jobs in NY

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Last week FiOS1 News shut down, and 150 people lost their jobs.

But for sports reporter Justin Walters, his luck finding a job turned around quickly.

Walters has accepted not one but two new positions. Starting in December, he will be a sideline reporter for CBS Sports and a reporter for WPIX in New York City.


“I need to stop asking God — why me? It’s WHY NOT ME🙏🏾. Thanks to everyone for your support on this journey,” he wrote on Twitter.

FiOS1, the 24-hour hyper local news network, shut down after Verizon didn’t renew the network’s contract.
