CSTV now "CBS College Sports Network"

CSTV is being re-branded as the CBS College Sports Network. Extraordinarily little-known fact about my long-and-winding sports-media work history:

I spent about 2 weeks working for that network in its earliest days (when it was known as "National College Sports Network"), launched by Brian Bedol, the genius (and fellow Harvard Business School graduate) behind Classic Sports Network (later bought by ESPN and re-branded ESPN Classic).

I left NCSN/CSTV to pursue the dream that would become the Daily Quickie. CSTV was sold to CBS for $395 million. I wouldn't have seen a dime of that, just so we're clear. -- D.S.

Brian Bedol happened to go to the same high school and college I went to.

It'll be interesting to see the ROI CBS recieves on CBS College Sports Network and MaxPreps.

Interesting indeed.
