NFL Network's "Good Morning Football" Moving To Times Square
NFL Network morning show "Good Morning Football" is "moving out of CBS’s Manhattan production facility by the beginning of April," according to John Ourand in this week's SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL. As part of its "TNF" agreement, CBS "hosted the show in its CBS Broadcast Center" since its August '16 launch. Fox "outbid CBS" to pick up "TNF" rights starting this fall, which means the network "no longer is contractually obligated to host the show." But an NFL Network exec said that the move was "planned well before CBS lost the rights." The morning show will "move 12 blocks south and be part of the NFL Experience in Times Square." NFL Network is "considering having a live audience during the show, though it won’t have one at the start." The show was NFL Network’s "first to originate" from N.Y. (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 2/12 issue).
