Reggie Bush To Appear on Reality Show

Reggie Bush is no stranger to reality television, having appeared on several shows starring former girlfriend Kim Kardashian. This time. however, the focus will be on Bush, who is making an appearance on a new CBS show called “Same Name,” which features celebrities switching places with people with the same name. Bush, a running back for the New Orleans Saints, is swapping lives with a construction worker in Danville, Illinois for a week this summer, so that the construction worker gets to experience the life of an NFL player during a lockout. Hopefully this won’t raise the odds that the construction worker gets arrested.

The experiment will air on CBS in July.

SBD: Page Thompson Stepping Down at Golf Channel

Sports Business Daily’s John Ourand reports that Golf Channel president Page Thompson will be stepping down “by the end of the year.”

Ourand reports that Thompson told staff that he will be moving back to Philadelphia before Comcast, which owns Golf Channel, gets final regulatory approval to acquire NBC Universal. NBC Sports & Olympics chairman Dick Ebersol was spotted taking a tour of Golf Channel, which is based in Orlando, earlier this year.

It sounds like Thompson may be in line for a new gig at Comcast, though what that job is remains to be seen. he had been leading the network for the last three years.

Update: B&C‘s Jon Lafayette confirms that Thompson will be getting a more senior job at Comcast.
