Final Four TV Schedule And Announcer Pairings For 2014

Basketball fans will be treated with a mad-scientist-y, gimmicky, potentially awesome broadcasting presentation during this year’s Final Four. Instead of the typical options – one television station or the radio – fans can now choose from three different channels. Oh why wasn’t this available during the Billy Packer era?

For the first time since 1982 games will not be broadcast on CBS. The games’ main broadcast feed will instead be on TBS. Two other stations, TruTV and TNT, will carry team-specific feeds. Below is a breakdown of the schedule and announcer pairings for the National Semifinals.
