Chris Pika, who writes the "Blog and Tackle" blog for WNST Radio in Baltimore, dropped me a line about 6 weeks or so back about Fox Sports possibly doing a major reshuffling of their talent and production teams for the 2009-2010 season.

The rumor arose from this short piece by Mike Florio on Pro Football Today:

We’re hearing that FOX is engaged in a relatively significant shuffling of its pro football television production, with changes coming among the ranks of play-by-play announcers, analysts, and producers.

Apparently, the moves arise more from a desire to shake things up than from considerations of the economy.

A Fox spokesman declined to comment today when asked by Eye on Sports Media, saying only that "Pairings are usually announced in the summer."

If the rumors are true, it will be very interesting to see what the teams look like come Fall.
