NEW IDENTITY: In Miami, Barry Jackson notes ABC Sports is dropping its coverage of the NFL, all BCS bowl games except for the Rose Bowl and all but the British Open from its golf coverage after ’06. ESPN/ABC Sports Senior VP/Programming & Acquisitions Len DeLuca said the “identity we’re starting and working on today is based on three pillars” the NBA, college football and NASCAR starting in ’07. DeLuca “confirmed ABC saw more upside in reacquiring NASCAR than continuing to carry the PGA Tour” (MIAMI HERALD, 1/27).
