Got word of these media moves on Tuesday. Both broken by the writers of the stories and giving credit where credit is due.
First, Mike McCarthy over at USA Today breaks news that Joe Buck has signed a four year contract with Fox to remain the lead voice of MLB and the NFL. And it leads to speculation that Joe Buck Live which was officially canceled by HBO earlier this week will head over to either Fox Sports or FX.
The second big news of the night is that it appears that Chris Berman will be staying at ESPN after concerted efforts by NFL Network and DirecTV to lure him away from the Mothership. The Big Lead reports that based on a source, Berman will stay at the only national network he’s ever worked dating back to 1979.
Ok, back to bailing out my basement. Talk to you later.
