FOX Sports Ohio Announces Changes to its Columbus Blue Jackets Broadcast Team

Dave Maetzold changes roles and Brian Giesenschlag
joins the team.
 

COLUMBUS,
OH –
FOX Sports Ohio
announces changes to its Columbus Blue Jackets broadcast team for the upcoming
2013-14 season.

It is with
regret that Natalie Taylor will not be returning to cover the Jackets this
season for the network. After reporting rink-side on the Blue Jackets for the
past two seasons, Taylor will be leaving the network to explore other
opportunities.

With the
departure of Taylor, FOX Sports Ohio is excited to announce that Dave Maetzold
will be the new in-game reporter. Entering his fourth season as a member of the
broadcast team, Maetzold previously hosted Blue Jackets Live pre- and
post-game show and served as feature reporter. He also hosted Blue Jackets
Slap Shots
, the week-in-review show that recaps games, breaks down upcoming
match-ups and showcases interviews and highlights.

As
Maetzold shifts roles to in-game reporter, the network welcomes Brian
Giesenschlag as the new host of Blue Jackets Live and Blue Jackets
Slap Shots
. Viewers will recognize Giesenschlag as FOX Sports Ohio’s
feature reporter for the Cincinnati Reds. Most recently, he was also the Sports
Director for WXIX Channel 19 in Cincinnati.
