Marv Albert, Al Michaels, Bob Costas to join forces for a broadcast — Marv Albert, Bob Costas and Al Michaels have combined to work 25 Super Bowls, 25 NBA Finals, 23 Olympics and 19 World Series. But they have never appeared on the same sports broadcast together. Albert, Costas and Michaels will join forces for the PBC on NBC show on April 11 (8:30 p.m.

Media Circus: Late call-up for Kentucky-Notre Dame — More Sports on the subject of why ESPN moved I enjoy the back and forth and there is no arguing this: When I suggest via email to Erik Rydholm that many people within his industry would consider him the most powerful producer at ESPN-making him by proxy one of the most powerful people in sports television-he wants no part of it.

Dallas Cowboys great Troy Aikman on Chris Borland, NFL Concussions — Chris Borland is half Troy Aikman's age, and when I recently asked Aikman if he thought about what his health would be like at 48 when he was Borland's age (24), he answered as I expected. He said it was inconceivable that he would think that far ahead.

NFL boldly going where no league has gone before with webcast-only game — No U.S. professional sports organization has been more adept at finding money from its broadcast partners than the NFL, and now the league will boldly go where it has never gone before for a regular season broadcast: The Internet. The NFL will live-stream next season's game between the Bills and Jaguars on Oct.

Media Circus: Michael Cole on Wrestlemania, NCAA TV ratings — The two lines above, delivered with Pacino-like panache by a man named Bobby Heenan during a July 7, 1996 pay-per-view event produced by World Championship Wrestling (WCW) called "Bash at the Beach," are instantly recognizable to devotees of professional wrestling.

Chris Webber returns to the NCAA tournament as a broadcaster — Chris Webber turned 42 earlier this month but it's hard not to think of Webber forever frozen as a teenage member of Michigan 's Fab Five. Such was the impact of Webber, Juwan Howard, Jalen Rose, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson, all of whom joined the Wolverines as freshmen in the fall of 1991 and captured the nation's attention with a distinct hip-hop look (long, baggy shorts and black socks) and remarkable on-court success.

NCAA women's tournament: UConn the favorite to win it all — State of the No. 1 seed If UConn plays its "A" game at the Final Four-the Huskies have advanced to the national semifinals every year since 2008 and it's the lock of the tournament that the streak will continue-it will cruise to a 10th national title in Tampa.

NCAA tournament 2015 TV guide: What viewers should know about March Madness

MLS TV Ratings: 2015 opening weekend numbers see increase — Plenty has been written about Major League Soccer's television ratings, and among the common words in such pieces are "problem" and "challenged" and "low." Last year the combined ESPN/ESPN2 broadcasts averaged 240,000 per game and 142,000 on NBCSN. The numbers on UniMas were 223,000 viewers.

Fox's Pam Oliver returns to sidelines for 2015, 2016 — Pam Oliver never saw it coming. "I was shocked, floored, a monumental surprise," says Oliver. "The call came out of the blue." The call was from Fox Sports president Eric Shanks and executive vice president John Entz, and it came the second week of January prior to the NFL divisional playoffs.
