Fox Business Producer Dies of Covid-19

Eric Spinato, who worked as the head booker and senior story editor for Fox Company, passed away Sunday of Covid-19.

“I’m so broken and lost for words,” Spinato’s sibling, Dean Spinato, composed on Instagram. “This man was an amazing father, brother and friend. I’m sorry to say this but this day broke me hard. I will make you proud for the rest of my life.”

A memo sent out to staff members from Fox executives explained Spinato, who operated at Fox for twenty years, as “an immensely gifted and aggressive booker.”

“He was always willing to lend a hand to help a colleague, mentor union staffers or troubleshoot an issue. Countless bookers throughout the industry learned the ropes and tools of the trade from Eric at one point or another in their careers. HIs excitement, positivity and energetic team spirit were one of a kind and will be greatly missed,” the memo included.

Fox News and Fox Company have actually come under fire in the in 2015 for regularly minimizing the seriousness of the pandemic, which has actually declared more than 543,000 Americans to date, according to information put together by Johns Hopkins University of Medication.
