first_imgJim Nantz and Tony Romo were inseparable when CBS broadcast the Super Bowl two years ago. They won’t see each other next week until they are in the broadcast booth a couple hours before kickoff. Nantz and Romo arrived on Monday of Super Bowl week two years ago in Atlanta and had a busy schedule of watching practices, meeting with players and coaches, doing interviews, production meetings and various dinners. That won’t be the case this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Keeping announcers separated until game day has been CBS’ protocol this season.last_img

Missouri graduate to share in invention profits under deal

first_imgKANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri graduate who said his professor stole his invention for a drug delivery system will share in its profits under a settlement that also gives the University of Missouri System a cut of the revenue. The Kansas City Star reports that Kishore Cholkar will get at least $1.4 million under the settlement for research done while he was working toward a doctorate at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. The deal announced in December ended the university’s nearly two-year court battle against former professor Ashim Mitra; the drug development company, Auven Therapeutics Management; and the manufacturer that brought Cequa to market, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries.last_img
