Allison Williams is returning to her role as a sideline reporter for college football, but she will be doing so as a worker for Fox Sports.
Williams worked at ESPN for several years before announcing her departure in the fall of 2021. She announced at the time it was due to her wanting to get the vaccine. Disney had a vaccine mandate for all salaried and non-union hourly employees.
“I am beyond thrilled and so grateful to be joining FOX Sports’ coverage of College Football this fall,” Williams told OutKick. “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.
“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 was at ESPN since 2011 and has been one of their most prominent sideline reporters for college football and basketball games.
OutKick is reporting that Williams will work selective games with FOX Sports this upcoming season.
