Gus Johnson Joins Fox, Will Serve As Lead College Football Announcer

END OF THE MADNESS? Johnson said, "I don't know if it's necessarily a better fit. It's a new opportunity and a bigger stage for me -- getting to be a lead play-by-play guy for a network like Fox." Johnson added he "lost a lot of sleep over" leaving CBS' NCAA basketball tournament coverage. But Shanks said that Johnson "might not have worked his last CBS broadcast." CBS "has used announcers moon-lighting from other networks" during its tournament coverage (Michael Hiestand, USA TODAY, 5/11).
