An empty stage covered by a black curtain awaits a broadcasting legend at a Las Vegas mega casino. After 77-year-old Brent Musburger calls his last game for ESPN Tuesday, January 31st, he will launch a new sports gambling network from the South Point Casino. Staff at the hotel were tight lipped this week about what this new stage will become. However, as Musburger called his final game of Kentucky versus Georgia, sources inside the South Point Casino started disclosing more details about the Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN). During his Super Bowl Sunday launch, Musburger is expected to be joined by guest host and fellow broadcasting icon, Al Michaels.
Earlier this week, Musburger’s nephew Brian Musburger divulged new details about the network through a news release. He indicated that more veteran broadcasters and producers would be allocated to the new venture, which is said to bring sports gambling out from the shadows.
The South Point Hotel and Casino is a 25-story hotel tower with a state-of-the-art sports book and convention center. Its 60 acres sit roughly 5 miles from what’s considered the main Las Vegas Strip.
