Fox News Mourns Deaths of Colleagues Matt Napolitano and Adam Petlin

Fox News is honoring the legacies of two late staff members.

Following the deaths of sports reporter Matt Napolitano and Chicago director of operations Adam Petlin, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott reflected on their careers.

“Matt did everything from anchoring to writing and producing for our audio platforms,” Scott said in a memo to staff, obtained by NBC News, “and loved being able to work in the journalism field that he trained for his entire life.”

According to a heartbreaking announcement from Napolitano’s husband Ricky Whitcomb, the 33-year-old passed away on Dec. 23. Whitcomb later shared that Napolitano “had an auto immune disease that he was diagnosed with almost 20 years ago and died as the result of an infection.”

After news of Napolitano’s death emerged over the holidays, New York City Mayor Eric Adams paid tribute to the journalist. 

“Matt Napolitano had a big future ahead of him,” Adams wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Dec. 26. “His enthusiasm, intelligence and sense of humor—which we all saw first hand at the annual @InnerCircleNY dinner—made him a great reporter.”
