According to industry sources, NBC10’s annual “Fit Fest” health and fitness expo will not return this spring. Around 70,000 people attended the event each year, which featured station personalities and NBC celebrities. It took place the last 11 years.
An NBC10 spokesperson wrote, “As the station continues sponsoring numerous community projects/events and with our increased involvement and sponsorship of environmental/ ‘going green’ projects we’ve decided to not sponsor ‘Fit Fest.’
Sources feel that budget concerns are the reason “Fit Fest” is not returning.
