FSN South (longform Fox Sports Net South) is a regional sports network that airs sports programming in the Southern United States. It is part of the larger Fox Sports Net (FSN) group of regional sports networks. The network carries professional and collegiate sports coverage from across the region, along with other sporting events and programming from FSN.

Viewing area

The viewing area includes Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. It is, by far, the largest FSN network by area and viewership. As such, the feed is often broken down into several sub-regional feeds for the purposes of adhering to the "home turf" rules belonging to the region's professional sports franchises (i.e., Memphis Grizzlies games and Nashville Predators games are only seen in Tennessee, most of Kentucky, northern Mississippi, and northern Alabama, while Charlotte Bobcats and Carolina Hurricanes games are only seen in the Carolinas. Neither are seen in the remaining portions of FSN South's coverage area). (Predators games occasionally re-air in North Carolina)

History

FSN South had its origins as the Turner Broadcasting System network SportSouth. It was purchased by News Corporation's Fox Cable group in 1996 and re-named Fox Sports South. In 2004 it became FSN South.

FSN South formerly produced the "Southern Sports Report" in their Midtown Atlanta studios, when the "regional sports reports" were a prime focus of the collective FSN networks. Other FSN networks also received their local sports reports from the Atlanta studios, often with the same hosts (Terry Chick being the most prominent). The Southern Sports Report was discontinued in 2005, and FSN South produced a similar program, "Around The South", that focuses on sports stories in and across the region. It has been replaced by FSN Final Score.

Ironically, FSN South originally had the name "SportSouth", which now is the name of its sister network. Like FSN South, that network (which was originally named Turner South) was originally owned by Turner and sold to Fox to become part of the FSN group.
