Geoff Shackelford has reported via his blog that Golf Channel will be moving their entire Orlando-based operation to Stamford Connecticut within the next year. Shackelford's article also includes a statement from management filled with the usual spin making the move seem completely necessary and positive.
Color me skeptical.
This clearly is a move that only makes financial sense to management and stockholders. Moving their operations so far away from Central Florida, home to a huge number of golf's most successful players and year-round golf weather, will make maintaining the quality of Golf Channel content a significant challenge, to say the least.
This will be one to keep a close eye on.
