Fox Sports names new president

Big news in the sports media biz:

Eric Shanks, a high-ranking DirecTV executive, was named president of Fox Sports Wednesday, at 38 becoming what is believed to be the youngest president ever of a broadcast network sports division.

Shanks will succeed Ed Goren, 65, who was named vice chairman.

Both Shanks and Goren will report to Fox Sports chairman David Hill.

(That's Goren as a young reporter in the video above, many, many years ago.)
