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.
