Brian Custer, Jim Jackson and Michael Rapaport All Return for Third Season

Experienced Sportscasters Carter Blackburn, Brendan Haywood, Brandon Tierney, Avery Johnson, and Ed Cohen Join the Announcer Lineup

LOS ANGELES - June 20, 2019 - CBS Sports and the BIG3 today announced the broadcast team for the 2019 season, which begins this Saturday, June 22 (8:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. The team will again feature longtime play-by-play announcer Brian Custer, analyst Jim Jackson and sideline reporter Michael Rapaport, who will all return for their third campaigns. The lineup will also include new adds Carter Blackburn, Brendan Haywood, Brandon Tierney, Avery Johnson and Ed Cohen.

"Our broadcast team has done an exceptional job providing exciting play-by-play and color around the league's fierce competition," said BIG3 co-founder Jeff Kwatinetz. "We're excited for the new additions and what they'll bring our fans during this season's national television schedule."

During the 11-week season, games will air live on CBS Television Network and CBS Sports Network on both Saturday and Sunday, with a champion crowned live on CBS on Sunday, Sept. 1 (3:00 PM, ET). CBS Television Network will broadcast more than 20 hours this season, with CBS Sports Network set to televise more than 25 hours of additional live game coverage.

Blackburn and Cohen will both join Custer as announcers this season. Blackburn, who delivers college basketball and football play-by-play for CBS Sports, has served as CBS Sports Network's lead announcer since 2014. Cohen is a 15-year veteran who has called a variety of sports including baseball, hockey and Olympic sports. For the past six seasons, he has announced college basketball games for CBS Sports Network.

Johnson, who spent 22 seasons as a professional player as well as 10 combined seasons as a pro and collegiate coach, brings several years of in-studio experience to the team.
