Fox Sports continues to revamp its talent roster with the addition of Curtis Strange, who will be the network’s lead on-course reporter.
In a phone conversation with Golfweek, Strange confirmed that he signed a three-year contract with Fox on Feb. 25.
“I wanted to work another contract. I’m 61 now, somewhat physically fit – that’s debatable,” he said, with a laugh. “I enjoy the TV role.”
Strange had been working as a tower analyst for ESPN, but that network’s golf inventory has been cut substantially with the loss of the early-round U.S. Open rights and the decision last year to give up its British Open rights with one year remaining on the contract. Strange said that led him to “put out a couple of feelers.” He had worked with Mark Loomis, Fox’s golf producer, at ABC and ESPN, and Strange said he and Loomis have stayed in touch over the years.
This will be Strange’s first job as an on-course reporter. He worked as a lead analyst for ABC and later as a hole announcer for ESPN.
