CBS News and Showtime Sports announced today that "60 Minutes" will air a monthly sports news magazine program on Showtime starting in November.
"60 Minutes of Sports" will be co-executive produced by "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager and Bill Owens, the executive editor of "60 Minutes." They will use the on-air talent from "60 Minutes" and CBS Sports to produce two original segments per month for the show, plus one updated "60 Minutes" classic sports story from the program's 44-year archive. Each program will also have a studio-based interview with a sports newsmaker.
Showtime already airs a number of sports programs, including "Inside the NFL," "Inside NASCAR," "The Franchise" and "All Access."
Showtime is owned by CBS.
