David Feherty on NBC's tournament coverage

After almost two decades on CBS Sports, David Feherty, former Ryder Cup player from Northern Ireland, will not renew his contract with the network giant.  It did not take long for him to be snatched by NBC, which hired him to cover Golf tournaments and much more.

“NBC Sports Group announced today that David Feherty will make NBC Universal his exclusive media home, which will include adding Feherty to NBC’s golf tournament coverage team, including the Olympics; an extension of his award-winning series ‘Feherty’ on Golf Channel; and a slate of new ventures highlighted by a Universal Television development deal,” NBC said in a release on Sept. 15.

He will be part of the NBC team that will be covering next year’s Olympic Games as well as the British Open, which starts in 2017. He will also be forming part of the team that will cover the PGA Tour.

During tournament coverage, Feherty will be dividing his time on golf course and acting as an analyst for Golf Channel and NBC.

Only three weeks after he did not renew his contract with CBS, he was chosen by NBC. This was one quick draft that looks promising to David. He will continue with his “Feherty” series on the Golf Channel.

Details on his salary were not disclosed by the network but what we know is that Feherty’s separation from CBS Sports has to do with his wishes of expanding into more than golf and a walking commentator, as well as demand for a higher salary.  In the words of NBC, Feherty will be working as “a fixture on NBC Sports’ coverage of the Olympic Games, Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup, as well as select PGA of America and European Tour events”.

"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,” Feherty said.  The best of luck to Feherty in this new opportunity.
