Former CNN Boss Jeff Zucker to Buy Into Front Office Sports

From a story on by Sara Fischer headlined “Former CNN boss Jeff Zucker to buy into Front Office Sports”:

Former CNN boss Jeff Zucker has agreed to acquire a stake in newsletter startup Front Office Sports, and will serve as co-chair of the newsletter startup’s board.

Why it matters: This is Zucker’s splashiest deal since launching RedBird IMI, a $1 billion investment fund focused on media, entertainment, and sports.

Zucker now has a brand and platform that he can use to develop and license new documentaries and video projects, with a source saying FOS will seek to hire new on-camera talent.
