Annie Sabo has entered her final week at Bally Sports North as she announced Sunday that she's moving to Florida.
Sabo joined the regional sports network in September 2019 after working at a TV station in Tampa Bay. She said her decision to leave was based on putting her family first.
"This has been by far one of the toughest decisions I’ve had to make in my career, but I’ve decided to put my family and fiancé first by moving back home to Tampa, FL.," Sabo wrote in an Instagram post.
Sabo's final broadcast will be this Sunday when the Twins host the Los Angels Angels.
"It’s been a pleasure/an honor to cover the Timberwolves and Twins over these last couple of years, and I’ll always be following from afar. Bally Sports North will always have a very special place in my heart…they gave this underdog a chance and I am forever grateful," she wrote.
Prior to joining BSN (formerly known as FSN), Sabo worked at WFLA TV in Tampa Bay, Florida, where she covered the Buccaneers of the NFL, Rays of the MLB, and Lightning of the NHL.
She was hired at BSN shortly after Katie Emmer left the network to become a studio host at NBC Sports Philadelphia. Emmer lost her job in January due what she indicated were pandemic-related cuts, and has since returned to Minnesota and rejoined BSN as a studio host.
Sabo is the daughter of former MLB player Chris Sabo, who played nine years in the big leagues and was a three-time All-Star with the Cincinnati Reds.
