CBS Tweet: Kerr Added To Final Four Broadcast

Yesterday the official Twitter feed for CBS Sports included this entry:

CBS tweet announces Steve Kerr joining Final 4 broadcast team

 NCAA March Madness: Jim Nantz, Clark Kellogg, and Steve Kerr will call the Final Four for CBS.

The Tweet was then deleted, but not before it was retweeted by dozens of followers of the CBS Sports Twitter account, including prominent media members.

The Tweet was also subsequently reported on the college basketball blog at CBSSports.com. That post, like the CBS Twitter account entry, was then removed.

Though it appears someone jumped the gun at CBS on announcing the news, there’s no going back now.

UPDATE: Vice President of Communications for CBS Sports Jen Sabatelle followed up with me about the Tweet in question. She said:

“It was not an official announcement. A talent announcement will be made in the near future.”

Sabatelle also said she could not confirm the information contained in the Tweet about Kerr joining the Final Four broadcast.
