For its first original series since becoming part of the NBC Sports Group, Golf Channel has ordered “Feherty,” an interview series with CBS Sports reporter David Feherty.
Given a 12-episode order, the halfhour “Feherty” will premiere June 20, the day after the completion of the U.S. Open.
Golf Channel came under the NBC Sports Group umbrella following the Comcast-NBC Universal merger.
Feherty, who has spent 14 years at CBS, will also serve as a contributing analyst on live events for Golf. A former PGA and European Tour pro, Feherty has gained a reputation for irreverent outspokenness.
“This show is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m glad it’s found a home at Golf Channel,” Feherty said. “I’m really overjoyed, so much so that I may have to cheer down, rather than up. I think I’m tri-polar.”
Interviews will not be limited to golf personalities, but will also include those from the worlds of entertainment and politics.
