AP source: Fox to air NFL draft along with ESPN, NFL Net­work

Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - SPORTS - By Rob Maaddi

Fox Sports will broad­cast the NFL draft this sea­son, along with the NFL’s usual tele­vi­sion part­ners of ESPN and NFL Net­work.

A per­son fa­mil­iar with the de­ci­sion says Fox will show the same feed as the NFL Net­work. The per­son spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the league and Fox haven’t an­nounced the de­ci­sion.

ESPN will still air its own draft feed but the per­son said the cur­rent rights deal for the draft al­lowed for the in­clu­sion of an­other broad­caster.

Pro Foot­ball Talk first re­ported the deal.

Fox won the rights to broad­cast 11 Thurs­day night foot­ball games in a deal with the NFL last month, tak­ing over a pack­age that was pre­vi­ously shared by NBC and CBS.
