CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus tells The Hollywood Reporter that he’s leaving it up to his broadcasters whether they want to say the Redskins name on television or not.
“We haven’t talked to them yet,” McManus told THR. “Generally speaking, we do not tell our announcers what to say or not say. Up to this point, it has not been a big issue for us. Last year, it was simmering; now it’s reaching a hotter level. But we probably will not end up dictating to our announcers whether they say Redskins or don’t say Redskins.”
“We leave that up to them and our production team. There are times when something becomes important enough that we talk to them, and between now and the start of football season we’ll decide what is the right thing to do.”
The good thing for CBS is that they only broadcast a few Skins games a year since they primarily show AFC games.
