GUMBEL'S "EYE" IS CLOSED, BUT WILL HE COME FULL CIRCLE?
Published August 13, 1998
Following CBS's cancelation of "Public Eye With Bryant Gumbel," the N.Y. POST's Michael Starr speculates on Gumbel's future with the net and writes, "it isn't lost on CBS and its sports division that Gumbel has a strong sports background." Gumbel signed a five-year deal worth about $7M per year with CBS last year, and with CBS set to begin its new NFL deal, Gumbel's knowledge "could come in handy as either a Sunday studio analyst or play-by-play man with his brother, Greg Gumbel." But one "insider" told Starr, "He's adamant about not going back to sports full-time." Pilson Communications President Neal Pilson said that Gumbel "is unlikely to assume a high-profile sports role at CBS." Pilson: "CBS is well-served with Jim Nantz in the anchor role on 'NFL Today,' and although that's a role Bryant played years ago at NBC I don't envision him having an important sports role at CBS" (N.Y. POST, 8/13).
