Will ABC/ESPN poach TV crew?

ABC-ESPN executives are trying to line up an on-camera crew for their return to the NASCAR tour. But it doesn't look like NBC's crew – Bill Weber, Benny Parsons and Wally Dallenbach – will be at the top of the list. But Krista Voda could get a nod. The highly polished Weber is easily the sport's top broadcaster, but it's unclear where his future might be.

Questions about who will be in front of the cameras aren't the only TV questions being raised. The production crews may also be in some doubt.

As ragged as some of the TV productions have been – and as commercially clogged – under the Fox-NBC-TNT reign, some fans might be pining for the good ol' days when ESPN handled many of the races. However, the game has changed considerably since those days, and the new ESPN look could be considerably different. Winston Salem-Journal
