MARK LOOMIS TO LEAD FOX SPORTS' GOLF COVERAGE

Emmy Award Winner To Serve As Coordinating Producer For USGA Studio & Event Production Debuting In 2015

LOS ANGELES - Veteran Emmy Award-winning producer Mark Loomis has joined FOX Sports as Coordinating Producer for golf event production and all studio programming. The announcement was made today by John Entz, FOX Sports Executive Vice President Production & Executive Producer. Loomis assumes his new role immediately, and he reports directly to Entz and FOX Sports President, COO and Executive Producer Eric Shanks.

The United States Golf Association (USGA), the governing body of the game of golf in the United States, and FOX Sports, the No.1 network for sports television since 1997, announced a comprehensive multi-media agreement last August that makes the FOX Sports and FOX Sports 1 the principal domestic media partner of the USGA and the U.S. Open, U.S. Women's Open and U.S. Senior Open Championships, as well as the USGA's national amateur championships and other live content, beginning in 2015. The landmark 12-year agreement, which runs through 2026, brings premier major championship golf for the first time ever to the FOX broadcast network, home to the country's greatest sports events, including Super Bowl XLVIII, the World Series, Daytona 500 and 2018 and 2022 World Cup.

"Mark is one of the most successful and respected producers in sports television today and we are thrilled to welcome him to the FOX Sports family," said Entz. "His leadership, passion, extensive experience and innovative approach to event and studio coverage make him the perfect choice as we become the home of the preeminent golf championship in the world."

Loomis joins FOX Sports with an extensive resume that features over a decade of experience and accolades. Most recently, he was Senior Vice President of Production for MLB Network, and prior to that had been a Coordinating Producer of ESPN's golf coverage, including the 2010 British Open. He worked at ABC Sports as the Coordinating Producer of its golf coverage and won an Emmy for his work on the 2005 British Open. Loomis was also a Coordinating Producer for the NFL Network's "Thursday Night Football," and produced college football games for ABC Sports, highlighted by three BCS National Championship Games and five Rose Bowls.
