Craig James Demands Reinstatement by Fox Sports Southwest, Sends Attorney Demand Letter


Craig James was hired by Fox Sports Southwest to be part of the studio show on August 31st. Two days later, he was terminated by Fox Sports Southwest, after one appearance. The reason was for his anti-gay stance during the Texas Republican Senate Primary the year before.

That decision by Fox Sports Southwest now has James upset and ready to fight. Here is a letter provided to Breitbart News.

Craig James

It includes the following:

“The termination of Craig James raises serious issues of religious discrimination, unlawful disparagement of the character of Craig James, malicious interference with his employment, and unlawful termination of your employment agreement with him.”

It also alleges that FSSW General Manager Jon Heidtke sought out James for the on-air position, knowing about his Senate run and political views.
