NBC Reaches Long-Term Deal To Telecast Ryder Cup Through '30
Published October 10, 2013
The deal to keep the Ryder Cup at NBC comes just two months after the net lost the U.S. Open to Fox beginning in '15. However, NBC Sports Group Chair Mark Lazarus said the impending loss of that tent-post event did not factor into the extension with the PGA of America. In what could have been a thinly veiled shot at Fox and the USGA, PGA of America President Ted Bishop indicated the timing of the announcement was not an accident. "We certainly respected the Presidents Cup last week," he said.
