Turner's Final Four Audience Down From '13, But Sets Cable TV College Hoops Mark
Published April 7, 2014
Turner's Teamcasts "were as advertised: Quality productions with hometown broadcasting." Horn: "If only there had been a controversial play to contrast approaches" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 4/6).
SMOOTH TRANSITION: In Austin, Cedric Golden wrote Clark Kellogg has "brought a nice college analytical perspective to the studio" with Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith, two longtime NBA analysts who "don’t follow the college game as closely." Kellogg is in his first year in the studio after six years next to Nantz in CBS' top broadcast team, and he said, "The studio is different but it’s something I could do well because Turner is now a partner and we have a little more time with all those games being televised in their entirety." Kellogg said that he "wouldn’t mind returning courtside to his old role in the future but that if it doesn’t happen, he would be fine dropping knowledge from the studio" (STATESMAN.com, 4/5).
