Allison Williams, former ESPN sideline reporter, reportedly joins new broadcast team for 2022
Allison Williams, a former sideline reporter for ESPN, will work for FOX Sports’ college football coverage in 2022.
Williams worked at ESPN from 2011 to 2021. Her time at ESPN came to an end when she did not receive the COVID-19 vaccine and the company had a vaccine mandate. Williams was pregnant with her second child and did not want to receive the vaccine because she was having a child.
For the upcoming college football season, Williams will return to the sidelines as a reporter for selective games. She spoke with Outkick about her new job at FOX Sports (Via Outkick):
“I am beyond thrilled and so grateful to be joining FOX Sports’ coverage of College Football this fall. Having to step away from the sport and profession I love this past year has re-affirmed and reinvigorated the passion I have for this job,” Williams said. “I can’t think of a more perfect way to return to the sidelines than with FOX and the tremendously talented crew of my former colleagues, Jason Benetti and Brock Huard. I am so grateful to the executive team at FOX, especially Brad Zager and Julie Boyd for giving me this opportunity.”
Williams will work with Benetti, who recently joined FOX Sports, and Huard, who also worked for ESPN.
