Now to just get Hubie Brown and Bill Walton booted from doing NBA games. (Tim McCarver and Joe Buck leaving baseball would be great as well…check out Awful Announcing for more terrible broadcasters)……I love March Madness and the only thing that dampens my fun is the sound of Billy Packer’s inane commentary. He’s a woeful broadcaster and should’ve been canned awhile ago. The article below if from the Miami Herald.

College basketball commentator Billy Packer, who has announced 34 consecutive Final Fours on network television and created a few controversies along the way, will not be returning to CBS for a 28th season, The Miami Herald has learned.

CBS has decided to replace Packer, 68, with studio analyst Clark Kellogg on its lead announcing team.

An announcement is expected Monday, but CBS representative Leslie Anne Wade confirmed the story Sunday night.

CBS believed the time was right for a change and that Kellogg deserved a chance to work with Jim Nantz on the lead team.

Packer, who had been going year to year with his contract, confirmed through a CBS official Sunday that he no longer will broadcast for the network but is pursuing other projects in basketball. Packer declined to comment further.

They also asked other TV networks to hold off reporting it, which they apparently agreed to do. A decade ago, when TV and radio had a lock on real-time news dissemination, this cozy arrangement might have stopped the news from spreading. In this day and age, of course, it didn’t.
