Top producer for both Fox News dies from COVID-19 complications

The COVID-19 pandemic might be waning across certain parts of the country, but unfortunately, the virus is still claiming lives.

According to The Hill, top producer for Fox News and the Fox Business Network, Eric Spinato, lost his battle over the weekend to complications arising from COVID-19. The producer was highly-praised by the network and those who knew him as one of the most talented producers in the cable news business. 

In a memo reportedly sent to Fox News staffers, the company referred to Spinato’s time at the network as “instrumental to the growth and entrepreneurial success” while adding that over the course of a 23-year career, his contributions were “immeasurable.”

“Eric was an immensely gifted and aggressive booker and was renown for booking the innumerable ‘gets'” the memo added. “Many of us can probably recall the cheerful greetings and outreach we received from Eric over his many years here.”

Tributes poured in for the legendary producer throughout the day on social media, virtually all of them echoing the same sentiment, which was that Spinato was kind, helpful and just an overall joy to deal with.

The late producer’s brother weighed in on Spinato’s tragic passing in a heartfelt Instagram post, saying “I love you bro. You were my rock. COVID took my brother today. He was a gem and one of a kind. I’m so broken and lost for words,” he said, while vowing to make his brother proud.

Spinato began his career at Fox News in 1998, just two years after its inception. He reportedly worked in several roles, including positions as a booking producer, story editor, and more.

During his impressive, 23-year career in the business — while most of it was spent at Fox News — Spinato briefly left the network to work for rivals CNN and MSNBC, but returned to Fox News in 2007 to help launch the Fox Business Network.

  1. When I told Fox News about how to kill the proteins inside all viruses they didn’t take my advice. ALL AMERICANS should be on Organic Virgin Coconut Oil everyday of their life to kill ALL viruses. How does it work: The acids in the oil attack the proteins in the virus and destroy them, once that is done the virus can no longer live, it died. In 2003 the country of China and the Philippines had the SARS virus. 600 hundred people died in China and 2 people died in the Philippines. Why only 2 was the question. But here in the USA, they didn’t want you to know why only 2 died. The law in the USA states, only a drug can cure or diagnose a disease. The people and the press wanted to know why in the Philippines but your country could care less. Here is what happened. A group of doctors went in front of the Press and answered as many questions as they could, but in the end the doctors asked a question as to why did 600 people in China die from the SARS virus but only 2 died in the Philippines. No one knew the answer, so the doctors had a sample of the SARS virus and found an electron microscope to magnify the virus and then they added a drop of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil to the virus. The acids in the oil made a hole in the side of the virus and attacked the proteins, and killing them. The virus died. So what do the people in the Philippines cook their food in ? In 2019 the President of the Philippines went on TV and radio to tell his people they must add this oil to their diet everyday to kill the Covid-19 virus. In their country, the young teens don’t cook, they eat fast food. The older people still cook with this oil. More than 70% of all the coconut oil on the planet comes from the Philippines. I buy it by the gallon !
