TBS gets first Selection

The 2018 NCAA March Madness Selection Show is heading to TBS, as the exclusive live first-time announcement of 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship pairings are revealed on March 11 at 6p. The shift this year comes as TBS is poised to carry this year’s NCAA Final Four National Semifinals on March 31, as well as the National Championship on April 2. This year’s two-hour Selection Show, produced in partnership between Turner Sports and CBS Sports, will be carried live from Turner Studios in Atlanta with Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson hosting the show, joined by analysts Clark Kellogg, Charles Barkley, Seth Davis and Kenny Smith.

CBS will broadcast the NCAA Final Four National Semifinals, National Championship and Selection Show in 2019, with the events alternating between Turner and CBS each year throughout the partnership.

Ahead of the Selection Show, Turner Sports and CBS Sports will present NCAA March Madness Bracket Preview on Feb. 11, at 12:30p on CBS, with the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Selection Committee offering an in-season look at the NCAA Tournament brackets.
