Pro-bowl Moving To Espn
Broadcast television has lost another major sporting event to cable, this time the NFL Pro Bowl, which is moving to ESPN. The 2009 game is scheduled to air on Fox, but ESPN will now take over in 2010, when it will air the week before the Super Bowl. (Previously it aired the week after the Super Bowl.) The deal is also a loss for Hawaii, where the Pro Bowl has been played since 1980. The 2010 game is due to be played in Miami, the Super Bowl host city. The announcement came one month after ESPN said that it had signed a deal to air college football's Bowl Championship Series.
