Dottie Pepper replaces Feherty at CBS Sports

Former LPGA Tour winner Dottie Pepper will replace David Feherty at CBS Sports, giving the network its first female voice.

Pepper, 50, was an analyst for NBC Sports from 2004 to 2012, before stepping away to reduce travel commitments, allowing her to join the board of directors at the PGA of America. 

David Feherty: best quotes

"There's no replacing Feherty," the two-time major winner told Golf.com. "Here's what I told the guys when I went to CBS to meet with them. I am not funny. But I will work really hard. So there you go."

Northern Irish funnyman Feherty left NBC after a 19-year partnership to join CBS Sports.

"Once it became evident that we weren't going to do our deal with Feherty, Dottie was the first and only analyst we considered for the job," CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said.

"Everyone we asked about Dottie just raved about her work ethic."

CBS Sports covers the most PGA Tour events of any network in the United States.
