NEW YORK – Steve Kerr will be the third man in the booth for the Final Four and national championship, joining Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg in calling the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
CBS Sports and Turner Sports announced the combined rosters on Thursday. Marv Albert will call some games and Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Greg Anthony will offer analysis from studios in New York and Atlanta. Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson will share studio hosting duties.
The changes are part of the 14-year, $10.8 billion deal the two companies signed in April.
The announcers will make appearances across CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV platforms. CBS will broadcast the Final Four on April 2, with the title game on April 4.
