Shake Up In FOX' Production Teams

(From Sports Business Daily)

EYE ON SPORTS MEDIA reported FOX SPORTS Chair and CEO DAVID HILL has demoted lead NFL director ARTIE KEMPNER, relegating him from the A team to the C team.

Sources said that there has been a "rift or some level of tension" between Hill and Kempner, who has served as lead director for Fox NFL games since 2003.

Meanwhile, Hill also has split the NFL team of producer BOB STENNER and director SANDY GROSSMAN, who have "worked together at FOX and CBS SPORTS for more than four decades."

A source said that the split "has many people scratching their heads, as this is supposed to be Grossman's last year."
