Fox Sports 1, the new all-sports network set to launch on Aug. 17, will have a slightly Canadian feel to it. In addition to using Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole, the anchor team formerly at Canadian-sports network TSN’s SportsCentre, FS1 has hired CTV on-air personality Julie Stewart-Binks as an update desk and news correspondent. Stewart-Binks joins Charissa Thompson, Erin Andrews and Molly McGrath as FOX Sports’ female sports talent. That’s quite a run on blondes for Rupert Murdoch.
Specializing in all things hockey, Stewart-Binks was also a reporter with Fox Soccer in Winnipeg. As is evident from some of the pics in the gallery below, Stewart-Binks knows what she’s doing behind the camera, too.
