Melding sports and comedy with an irreverent tone, the Best Damned Sports
Show Period is slated to debut on Fox Sports Net July 23 at midnight.
The 60-minute show, airing Monday through Friday, will feature former Major
League Baseball player John Kruk, National Football League Hall of Famer Deacon
Jones, actor Tom Arnold and ex-National Basketball Association star and
broadcaster Reggie Theus in a 'guy talk' format in which the quartet discusses
topical sports stories in an opinionated, humorous and offbeat way.
FSN's National Sports Report anchors, Steve Lyons and Chris Myers,
will host the show, with Lyons on board Monday through Wednesday and Myers the
other two days.
Lisa Guererro, who has worked as a reporter and anchor for FSN's Southern
California Regional Sports Report, will provide sports-news breaks during
the program, which is initially slated for a 13-week run.
