Hughes Taken Off The Air After Alleged Affair With Lowe

FSN Pulls Hughes Off
Air Amid Affair Rumors
Carolyn Hughes, co-host of the Dodgers pre- and postgame shows on FSN West 2, “has been off the air for about two weeks as FSN executives investigate her relationship with” Dodgers P Derek Lowe, according to Larry Stewart of the L.A. TIMES. Lowe’s wife, Trinka Lowe, “alleged an improper relationship” between Lowe and Hughes in phone messages left for FSN execs. FSN West GM Steve Simpson on July 25 said that Hughes was being investigated but “would return to her role as an anchor” on the net’s “Southern California Sports Report.” However, Stewart notes Hughes “has not appeared” on the net in any capacity since the investigation began. Fox Sports Senior/VP Media Relations Lou D’Ermilio: “As soon as we were made aware by Mrs. Lowe that a potential problem existed, we removed Carolyn from covering the Dodgers. At present, we’re investigating to determine if a conflict of interest did exist.” Trinka Lowe said that her husband and Hughes had rented a house in Manhattan Beach. She added that Derek “had asked for a divorce and she had moved back to their home in” Fort Myers, Florida. Meanwhile, Hughes’ husband, Tommy Saboni, said that he and Hughes “were in the process of getting a divorce and had been separated since March” (L.A. TIMES, 8/3).
