The former Fox regional sports networks, now owned by Sinclair, will soon be under new leadership. Jeff Krolik has been in charge of those networks for the past 15 years, but is now retiring effective August 30 2020. That’s near the one-year anniversary of Sinclair’s purchase of the networks. Sinclair has already retained Los Angeles-based firm Nolan Partners to look for Krolik’s replacement. Krolik started his career at HBO in 1979 and held various positions there, including vice president of HBO International, before moving to the Fox regional networks in 1997. He started with Fox as the senior vice president and general manager of Fox Sports Bay Area and served in that role through 2007 (when that network shifted ownership and became Comcast Sports Bay Area; it’s now NBC Sports Bay Area). At that point, he was tabbed as executive vice president of the Fox RSN group, and he was then promoted to president of that group in 2013.
