‘Real’ ready for Rashad

B'caster gets hosting spot

NBC Sports personality Ahmad Rashad may be keepin’ it real in syndication starting this fall.

Sources indicate that Rashad is in talks with Paramount Domestic Television to take over for John Daly as host of “Real TV,” a firstrun reality strip currently in its fourth season in broadcast syndication. If the deal is finalized, Rashad would assume hosting duties at the start of the fall season.

The new job would not require Rashad to give up any of his duties at NBC. He has been the network’s lead courtside reporter for the NBA since 1990 and covered the Olympics for NBC since 1988 while also co-hosting and exec producing NBC’s “NBA Inside Stuff.” Rashad played in the NFL for 11 years.

Paramount would not confirm the hire, and Rashad could not be reached for comment.
