Fox Business to Sponsor Pro Golfer

Jason DufnerAs the Masters tournament kicks off this weekend, Fox Business Network is getting in on the action–the business network is sponsoring professional golfer Jason Dufner, Variety reports.

Dufner, who won the 2013 PGA Championship, will don the FBN logo on his shirt collar starting Monday.

“Our viewers are champions of business and industry and they are interested in golf and tennis, and we saw a lot of correlation there, “ said Brian Jones, senior vice president of programming and operations at Fox Business Network.

“You will see our brand logos on his apparel, and then we will talk to him as the season progresses about personal appearances on the channel and, obviously, social media,” said Jones, who declined to discuss how much FBN was paying in the sponsorship pact.

The amount FBN is paying for the sponsorship hasn’t been disclosed.

Ron Artest Passes On Dancing With The Stars

There won’t be World Peace on this season of Dancing with the Stars.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest was “seriously thinking about” competing on the ABC dance competition show, but it appears he’s passing on the opportunity, according to Laker Nation:

Artest had this to say when we asked him at Matt Barnes 3rd annual Athletes vs. Cancer event at Trump National.

“Nah I’m not doing that. People want me to, but I’m not. I like that show though!”

Guess it would be hard to Dancing with the Stars from England, huh?
