Josh Elliott Leaves NBC 2 Years After ABC Departure; Fox Sports Next?

Josh Elliott's departure from ABC's "Good Morning America" to NBC Sports in early 2014 was pretty controversial.

Anchor Josh Elliott is leaving NBC Sports after just two years.

Elliott was a part of ABC's “Good Morning America" team until spring 2014, when he made the big, and somewhat controversial, move to NBC Sports.

Before ABC, Elliott was a well-known anchor for ESPN, which could factor into his next industry opportunity. 

Former ESPN and NBC exec Jamie Horowitz is now a leader at Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, and The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news of Elliott's departure, says there's speculation Elliott could join him in some capacity. 

Horowitz has been hiring a plethora of talent away from ESPN recently, including Colin Cowherd and Jason Whitlock.
