CBS Sports Network

CBS Sports Network is a sports-oriented American digital cable and satellite channel that is operated by CBS Corporation through CBS Sports. Launched as the National College Sports Network in 2002, then renamed as College Sports Television in 2003, CBS's then-parent company Viacom acquired the network in 2005 and later renamed it CBS College Sports Network in 2008. The network had always focused on college sports, but in 2011, CBS rebranded the network as CBS Sports Network as a move to reposition the network to include mainstream sports—including coverage of minor professional sports leagues such as the Arena Football League and Major League Lacrosse, although college sports are still aired frequently by the network.

CBS Sports Radio

CBS Sports Radio is a sports radio network that launched on September 4, 2012 with hourly sports news updates. It began offering a full 24-hour schedule of sports talk programming on January 2, 2013.[7] CBS Sports Radio is owned and operated by CBS Radio, a division of CBS Corporation, with Cumulus Media Networks handling distribution and marketing of the network. Sports radio stations that are owned by CBS and Cumulus Media carry part of the full schedule of programming, while eight CBS-owned stations carry network programming throughout the day. In addition to carriage on terrestrial stations, CBS Sports Radio also streams its programming on the internet.[7]
