NEW YORK (AP) - Billy Packer is out after 27 years as the lead
college basketball analyst for CBS. He's being replaced by Clark
Kellogg, who has done game and studio analysis for the network for
16 years. He'll partner with Jim Nantz on his first Final Four in
April.
Kellogg says he's "excited, humbled and quite pleased" at the
opportunity.
Packer confirmed the move Sunday, through a CBS official, to The
Miami Herald, which first reported the story.
The 68-year-old Packer played college basketball at Wake Forest
and now lives in Charlotte. He is pursuing other basketball
projects and declined further comment.
