Published April 7, 2014
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: In N.Y., Bob Raissman reported it appears a pregame show for CBS' Thursday NFL package "will air from the site of the game" in an attempt to "make the whole Thursday night thing special." There likely will be both CBS and NFL Network analysts "at the desk." The NFL "may have requested the guaranteed presence of some NFLN analysts" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 4/6).
ON PINS & NEEDLES: In this week's SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, John Ourand writes the upcoming release of the '14 NFL schedule "has created even more anticipation among the league’s TV partners, thanks to the presence of CBS’s first Thursday night package" (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 4/7 issue).
