Golf Channel Lines Up Former NFLers For New "Big Break" Season
Golf Channel today will formally announce that it is partnering with the NFL for its next “Big Break” series, with six former NFLers competing in the 20th version of the show. The 11-episode season debuts Oct. 8. NBC "plans to promote the series heavily during its NFL programming," and Golf Channel will use “SNF” sideline reporter Michele Tafoya as one of the series’ hosts, alongside Tom Abbott. Golf Channel "can use the NFL shield as part of the 'Big Break' logo" (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 7/15 issue).
