From USA Today: “That’s a decrease of more than 50% compared to 2019. [Financial audit documents obtained show] a $700 million decline in television and marketing rights revenue, nearly all of which came from the NCAA’s multimedia and marketing rights contract with CBS and Turner. In the association’s 2019 fiscal year, it reported nearly $868 million in such revenue.”
