Fox Sports Net will launch two sports news shows early next year, according to MEDIAWEEK. "Goin' Deep," a weekly sports newsmagazine to air Sundays from 9:00-10:00pm, is scheduled to begin in February. It will examine current sport issues. "The Last Word" will begin in early January and will debate "the day's top sports stories." It will air Monday-Saturdays at midnight (MEDIAWEEK, 12/15 issue). FOX TV: News Corp.
