Fox Sports is in as the next broadcast partner for the U.S. Open starting in 2015. Johnny Miller appears to be out.
The network said Tuesday that Fox Sports 1, converted from Speed TV, will be in 90 million homes. The company has rights to college basketball and football, NASCAR, soccer and UFC for the channel.
The longtime chief executive of the Fox Networks Group is stepping down, triggering a reorganization for the TV unit of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.
Freer said it was too early to determine how Fox will cover the events or which announcers it will use.
Randy Freer, the co-president and chief operating officer of Fox Sports, said the amateur events give Fox extensive content for its national and regional sports networks and that the deal could bring new viewers to Fox Sports 1.
