NBC Sports Network Cancels The Crossover in Programming Shift

The NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) today announced a series of programming moves as it continues its coverage of the NFL and the Premier League and gets set for the NHL season.

The big news from the announcement was the cancellation of The Crossover, which was hosted by Michelle Beadle.  Beadle was on our Sports Media Weekly program last week talking about how she had hoped for better promotion for her show from the network.  Unfortunately for her that will not be needed.

Beginning Monday NBCSN will pro producing a 90-minute block of NFL programming beginning at 5:00p.m. ET.  On weekdays with a live Premier League match, that game will be followed by Premier League Goal Zone.
