Jim Nantz reveals date for last Final Four broadcast, names immediate successor
Jim Nantz has spent over 3 decades as the voice of the Final Four, and the 2023 NCAA Tournament will be his final one, he announced Monday. Nantz’s successor will be Ian Eagle, the New York Post reported.
His final Final Four will take place in Houston – where Nantz got his start in undergrad at the University of Houston. He picked this season as his final one because of the significance of the location. He also picked 2023 as his final year because the games will air on CBS.
In a statement given to the New York Post, Nantz said he made the decision because of his family.
“It is time with two young children and an older daughter that I spend more time at home,” Nantz said. “Daddy needs to be home.”
Though his time covering the tournament is coming to an end, Nantz will continue to be CBS’s voice for NFL and golf.
