BILLY PACKER IS FINALLY GONE

BILLY PACKER

We speculated about this in April. According to the Miami Herald, After years of making sexist, racist and idiotic remarks CBS Sports has fired basketball announcer Billy Packer. Packer spent 27 years at the network. He had broadcast 34 consecutive Final Fours.

Sponsor complaints finally did Packer in. Several reportedly complained about his performance during this year’s NCAA Tournament. Packer will be replaced on the broadcasts by longtime CBS studio host and former college and NBA player Clark Kellogg.
