Golf funnyman David Feherty who has been with CBS Sports for almost two decades has just signed with NBC Sports Group. Emmy-nominated Feherty will continue his “Feherty” series on the Golf Channel as well as tournament analysis and NBC golf telecasts.
“I’m really looking forward to this next step in my career, but I’ll miss a lot of people who have had my back for nearly 20 years. And to be honest, I’m on the verge of soiling myself,” said Feherty, who worked for CBS Sports for nearly two decades. “However, I am looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities at NBC and Golf Channel. I haven’t yet heard the over-under on me getting fired, but hey, I beat the odds last time.”
NBCUniversal will now be his exclusive network home. He will cover PGA Tour events, the Ryder Cup, the Olympics and many more.
“David is a true talent who connects with people from all walks of life because of his ability to transition from hilarious to heartfelt so smoothly,” said Golf Channel president Mike McCarley. “Now we will be able to showcase his unique voice across a wide array of NBCUniversal assets, including from the biggest stages in global sports and entertainment.”
