Jason Fitz (ESPN) Wiki Biography

Jason Fitz was born in Nashville, Tennessee USA, on 3 June 1977, so under the zodiac sign of Gemini and holding American nationality – he is popular for being a sports broadcaster for ESPN, while he was previously a musician.

Early life and education

Jason spent his entire childhood in Nashville, but hasn’t shared much about that period of his life with the public. He couldn’t have been heard talking about his parents, as he appreciates their privacy; he’s considered to be an only child only because he hasn’t talked about having any siblings.

Jason fell in love with music at a very early age, and began taking singing classes when he was five – however, he soon realized he was not much of a singer, and instead focused on playing string instruments, mostly the violin. Jason enrolled at a local high school, and had a rather normal childhood, going out and partying with his friends – after matriculation, he focused on his career as a musician and didn’t enroll at college, however, he did study violin at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City.

Career of a musician and a reporter

Jason launched his career soon after matriculation, as he became part of The Band Perry music band, and served as their fiddle player – The Band Perry plays country music which is Jason’s favorite genre. He loved music and ,was popular thanks to his skill at playing the violin, however, a couple of things eventually made Jason want to switch from music to something else.

Jason and The Band Perry had numerous tours together, meaning that he was rarely at home, however, he didn’t mind this at first as he enjoyed travelling and partying with other band members.

Although he was very fond of the attention he was getting and fun he was having, after marrying, Jason came to realize he could no longer go on with that kind of life as he had his wife at home and rarely saw her due to his tours with his band.

It was a big step for Jason to leave his career as a musician behind him, but it seems that he has done it without much effort, and very successfully. He began working for the ESPN network as their sports broadcaster in 2016, and it didn’t take long for him to get used to his new job as he was already into sports, and was keeping up with the news from several of them.

Jason has also made a couple of bad or wrong decisions during the time he has spent working for the ESPN network. He was once asked by a fan, who is the person from the country music industry that he would most gladly punch in the face – instead of refusing to answer the question, Jason stated that this would probably be Alan Jackson. Luckily for him, this hasn’t affected Jason’s career in any way, and he went on to be promoted to a national sports broadcaster on 2 January 2018.

    Jason Fitz signs multi-year extension with ESPN
    Congratulations! I heard you on Golic and Wingo and am thrilled for your own show.

    Comment on “the kneel” – and the one who chose to make this an issue was:

    Colin Kaepernick’s lawyer slammed the NFL’s team owners for blackballing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback from professional football, and accused them of colluding together in response to President Donald Trump’s repeated attacks on players who protest during the national anthem.

    “The collusion actually was the NFL kowtowing to the president — I think it’s clear,” high-profile attorney Mark Geragos said Thursday in an exclusive interview on “Today.”

    I live in San Diego and have followed Drew Breeze since he was here.
    I have come to believe most people are politically mentally wired in way or the other or lean more to one side or the other.
    I have several friends whose politics differ from mine and I wouldn’t dream of trying to change their
    opinion, although they tend to test me with questions re different issues.
    To me Drew’s statement went way deeper than honoring the flag – and he didn’t even know it.
