Fans accustomed since 1982 to watching the NCAA Tournament selection show on CBS will have to turn instead to TBS at 6 p.m. Sunday.

Turner had the right to televise the show under terms of its contract with CBS because this year is its turn to show the Final Four — a right it did not exercise two years ago.

The show will return to CBS next March.

As usual, announcers representing both CBS and Turner will appear. Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson will co-host the two-hour show, with the selections planned for early in that time slot.
