Local Reporter Spotlight: Allie Clifton

The proliferation of regional sports networks has provided another source of revenue for professional sports franchises. Unlike national correspondents, who mainly follow successful teams, and broadcast reporters whose stations are unable to afford to send a reporter to every road game, regional sports channels are the go-to for fans to get the inside scoop on their teams.

This week’s local newsperson is Fox Sports Ohio Cleveland Cavaliers sideline reporter Allie Clifton.
