HBO's Hershman Promises Not To Be Consumed By Mayweather-Pacquiao Talks
Published February 1, 2012
LOTS OF RESPONSIBILITIES: ESPN.com's Dan Rafael wrote Hershman, who joined HBO in October, is "starting to delve more into programming the network's fights for the second quarter and beyond." Besides boxing, Hershman also oversees "a critically acclaimed sports documentary department" that produces "24/7" and news magazine show "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel." But Rafael noted boxing "is the foundation." Hershman is keeping his plans "close to the vest," but did say that he "likes the idea of continuing to do tournaments." He also is "open to more heavyweight action, especially involving champion brothers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko." But Hershman said that he "sees no big-time matchups on the horizon" (ESPN.com, 1/31).
