Vitale to call Final Four games on ESPN International

Dick Vitale is going to get the call the NCAA men's basketball tournament Final Four -- for the rest of the world.

Vitale will be an analyst on ESPN International's coverage of the Final Four, calling a semifinal and the championship game from Atlanta. Brad Nessler will be the play-by-play announcer for all three games, while Jay Bilas will work one semifinal.

Because CBS Sports has had the Final Four since 1982, Vitale has been prevented from calling a Final Four game. Vitale has been with ESPN since 1979.
