Hey all, I'm new here. I don't really have any good reason that I need this ID'ed, but I saw it a lot while watching the NCAA basketball tournament and it got me curious. =) You guys seem pretty good at ID'ing type, so I thought I'd post it here.
I think the face has been in use by CBS Sports since at least the mid-1980s, so it has to be from before then. Might be a custom job, too -- I don't know. The large "S" in "SPORTS" seems to have different proportions, so maybe that was done custom and the rest is a typeface?
The only thing I've been able to find that comes close is a cheap-looking face called "AquaticHeavy", with a copyright listed by "NovelFonts" (1994), that's undoubtedly a ripoff of some other face. "Aquatic" has the right kind of semiserifs, but the curves are wrong.
Thanks in advance!
