Bill Raftery, a longtime favorite for many college hoops fans, has been picked to call the 2015 Final Four along with former Duke and NBA star Grant Hill, CBS Sports and Turner Sports announced on Tuesday.
Raftery and Hill will join CBS Sports’ Jim Nantz and Tracy Wolfson for the television broadcast of the national semifinals (Saturday, April 4 on TBS) and national championship game (Monday, April 6 on CBS) from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Raftery has been part of the CBS Sports college basketball coverage since 1983, but this will be the first time that he has been on the television broadcast for the Final Four. The same is true for Hill, who worked last season as a studio analyst for the NCAA Tournament and has been a part of Turner Sports’ NBA coverage, including the host of NBA Inside Stuff, since 2013.
This is the fifth year the NCAA Tournament will be covered by CBS Sports and Turner Sports, with games airing on CBS, TBS, TNT and TruTV. The full commentator lineup will be announced at a later date.
