“Matt demonstrated his love for journalism during countless appearances on several FOX programs; with his attention to detail and vast knowledge of sports, he informed FOX audiences of the latest sports news,” Fox News noted on Wednesday.

Last month, Napolitano joined Fox Business host Neil Cavuto to discuss Major League Baseball’s decision to host the 2025 All-Star Game in Atlanta, following backlash over a set of voter integrity laws in the state.

Napolitano married his husband, Ricky Whitcomb, in May of this year.

Whitcomb said on social media that Napolitano “had an auto immune disease that he was diagnosed with almost 20 years ago and died as the result of an infection.”

Napolitano joined Fox in 2015.

The Guardian reported in September 2021 that “The vast majority of employees at Fox Corporation, the umbrella company for the conservative Fox News channel, are vaccinated against coronavirus.”
