From Jayski:

"NASCAR Vice President of Broadcasting and New Media Dick Glover will leave the sanctioning body later this month, a NASCAR spokesman confirmed Thursday. Glover will become CEO of Funny or Die Networks, a celebrity and user-generated video content site co-founded by comedian/actor Will Ferrell, NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said. Glover, who worked at ABC and ESPN prior to joining NASCAR in 2003, managed the sanctioning body's television partnerships, new media and entertainment. Glover's last day at NASCAR will be January 15, Street and Smith's SportsBusiness Daily reported.(SceneDaily.com)(1-4-2008)"

Doesn't sound like he's leaving for a promotion, so I wonder if someone is not happy with the way TV things are going?  We can only hope...

Sure wish this was the beginning of a "heads will roll" movement, but we are talking about BF, so we know that's not going to happen.

I'm afraid you're right, Cheryl.  Dick Glover left on his own for another company similar to YouTube with some celebrity backing.

By the way, Will Ferrell is a huge sports fan.  He was at the Rose Bowl to root for his alma mater, USC.
