NEW YORK (AP) -Billy Packer is out after 27 years as the lead college basketball analyst for CBS, making way for Clark Kellogg.
Kellogg has done game and studio analysis for CBS for 16 years. He will partner with Jim Nantz on his first Final Four in April.
``With his unquestioned popularity and performance over the years, Clark Kellogg earned all rights to this top spot,'' Sean McManus, president of CBS News and Sports, said in a statement Monday. ``Like Billy Packer, Al McGuire or any of the most highly regarded broadcasters, Clark is an original voice with his own style and perspective.''
Packer confirmed the move Sunday, through a CBS official, to The Miami Herald, which first reported the story. Packer is pursuing other basketball projects and declined further comment.
Kellogg said he was ``excited, humbled and quite pleased'' at the opportunity.
``I appreciate the confidence Sean has expressed in affording me this new role,'' he said in a statement.
