Along with further speculation about Al Michaels’ next move, the LA Times’ Larry Stewart reports on other pending changes in the TV football landscape.
The Times has learned Fox’s James Brown, currently in contract negotiations, could be headed back to CBS, where he used to work. Exactly what Brown’s role at CBS would be is not known, and his agent, Sandy Montag, declined comment. Fox spokesman Dan Bell said only that contract negotiations are continuing.
If Brown were to leave Fox, Terry Bradshaw might be moved into the host’s chair on the network’s NFL pregame show, leaving an opening for another studio analyst.
The Times also has learned that ESPN’s Andrea Kremer and CBS’ Armen Keteyian are moving. Kremer will become the sideline reporter for NBC’s Sunday night telecasts. And Keteyian, CBS’ top NFL sideline reporter, is headed for CBS News. Another CBS sideline reporter, Bonnie Bernstein, did not have her contract renewed.
