Are you ready for the 2023 NCAA Tournament and all the madness we’ll have during the month of March? Well, you better be. March Madness is just about ready to tip off, with the First Four games taking center stage in Dayton, Ohio, this week on Tuesday and Wednesday. The NCAA Tournament kicks into gear with 68 teams all vying to become the 2022-23 national champion. On the call for the March Madness festivities this year will be a number of notable voices along with some new names in visible roles.
This NCAA Tournament mark the last for an icon of the event’s TV coverage. Lead play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz will step away from his college basketball broadcasting role after calling his 32nd Final Four. Nantz will remain with CBS for coverage of golf and the NFL, but he will be handing off his college basketball role to Ian Eagle, who will be the Final Four play-by-play voice starting in 2024.
A couple new names in prominent positions are longtime NBA coach and current TNT television analyst Stan Van Gundy, who will serve as an analyst for game action, and former Villanova coach Jay Wright, who will step in as a studio analyst for the first time. Those who have been watching CBS college basketball coverage throughout the regular season have seen Wright in his new role already, but this will be his first Big Dance in the studio since his 21-year run with the Wildcats that featured two national titles.
