Texas Longhorns TV Network
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - University of Texas regents are scheduled to meet with the school president in Austin about plans to create a special Longhorn Network for sports television programming.
President William Powers Jr. will meet with regents behind closed doors Wednesday morning to discuss details, with a shorter public meeting scheduled for early afternoon.
ESPN has confirmed that it's in talks with Texas to distribute the network, but ESPN and school officials have declined to discuss how much it would be worth.
Fox Sports reportedly also has been interested in developing the Longhorn Network.
A Fox spokesman didn't respond to an e-mail message seeking comment.
