Gus Johnson Joins Fox Sports

Gus Johnson, who’d become the voice of the NCAA tournament during his 16 years with CBS, has joined Fox Sports after CBS declined to match the competing network’s offer, Bob Raissmann of the New York Daily News first reported tonight.

A CBS source who wanted Johnson back said not only money, but politics was an issue. The source said some of CBS Sports’ college hoops voices were not thrilled with Johnson’s rise to March Madness’ most popular voice.

Johnson now moves to Fox as an NFL and Pac 12 football play-by-play man.
