VERSUS Will Be Retired At the End of the Year, New Name Coming Soon

From Pete Dougherty of the Albany Times-Union:

In the course of an interview for this week’s Times Union sportsmedia column, NBC programming president Jon Miller said the new name for “Versus” should be revealed within the next couple of weeks, “but we’re not going to flip the switch until the start of the new year.”

 

“We’ll have regular NHL,” Miller said of NBC’s cable entity. “We’ll have some other stuff that we’re going to be announcing. We have some fun programming in the works that’s going to make it an exciting place for people to go look. We’re not going to be ESPN. We’ve never claimed to be ESPN, but I think we’ll be an attractive alternative.”

 

Versus will carry five of the eight “Summer at Saratoga” programs (NBC has the other three). The series will begin at 5 p.m. Saturday with the American Oaks on NBC.
