Food City 500 from Bristol Motor Speedway Honors Broadcaster Steve Byrnes

In recognition of FOX Sports broadcaster Steve Byrnes’ courageous and ongoing battle with head-and-neck cancer, FOX Sports, in coordination with Bristol Motor Speedway, Speedway Motorsports Inc. (SMI), Stand Up To Cancer and NASCAR, is naming the April 19 NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES race from Bristol the FOOD CITY 500 IN SUPPORT OF STEVE BYRNES AND STAND UP TO CANCER.

The event, live on FOX (coverage begins at 12:30 PM ET), pays tribute to Byrnes, a NASCAR television mainstay for 30 years, while also serving as a vehicle of support and awareness for all those battling cancer.

Byrnes, co-host of NASCAR RACE HUB and play-by-play announcer for the NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES, is on a medical leave of absence while he undergoes treatment. He has been part of the FOX NASCAR broadcast team since its inaugural year of NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES coverage in 2001.

“The support I have received from my teammates at FOX Sports, drivers, team members, track officials, NASCAR and the fans has been overwhelming,” Byrnes said. “So many families are affected by cancer, and to play a small part in raising awareness is an honor to me.”

FOX SPORTS SUPPORTS CONTINUES COMMITMENTS WITH BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF AMERICA AND STAND UP TO CANCER

FOX Sports Enters Second Year of Two-Year Commitment with Both Charities; Pledges Support to Additional Initiatives throughout the Year

Los Angeles – FOX Sports Supports, the charitable branch of FOX Sports, proudly continues its two-year commitments to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Stand Up To Cancer through the 2015 calendar year. These collaborations, which began with the 2014 Daytona 500, focus FOX Sports resources toward these two organizations in campaigns that span all FOX Sports assets and premier events. The two charitable initiatives were chosen by a vote of FOX Sports employees in December 2013.

Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which was selected in the Education, Human Services & Military category, are dedicated to enabling all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens through programs that teach leadership, education, health, sports and much more. Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), voted on in the Health & Wellness category, is a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that gets new therapies to patients quickly in order to save lives now. SU2C brings together the best and brightest researchers and encourages collaboration instead of competition among the entire cancer community.

“FOX Sports continues to demonstrate their commitment to Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s mission, using their many assets to bring awareness to the crises affecting our nation’s youth,” said Jim Clark, President & CEO of BGCA. “This valued partnership supports the work of local Boys & Girls Clubs in creating great futures for those young people most in need.”

“We are honored to have FOX Sports continue their support of Stand Up To Cancer,” said SU2C co-founder Lisa Paulsen, president and CEO of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF). “Each and every one of us can make a difference in the fight against cancer, and we are grateful to FOX Sports’ employees and leadership in helping us get that message out to sports fans everywhere.”

In 2014, FOX Sports Supports contributed millions of dollars to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and SU2C through the production of public service announcements, broadcast and cable air time and in-kind support including monetary and gift donations. FOX Sports Supports was honored with the “Champion of Youth” award at the 2014 Boys & Girls Clubs of America Great Futures Gala in the pacific region, where the organization saw record fundraising numbers, and FOX Sports President, COO & Executive Producer, Eric Shanks was inducted into the organization’s alumni Hall of Fame in May. In September, the FOX broadcast network and FOX Sports 2 were among the networks to air SU2C’s fourth annual roadblock telecast, which raised over $100 million in pledges.

FOX Sports Supports will also support several other initiatives throughout 2015, including FOX Sports’ premier partnership with AYSO; Movember’s month-long men’s health campaign; organizations against sexual assault; environmental sustainability; a variety of military initiatives; and the American Heart Association, which serves as a sponsor of the Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards, who recently presented its 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award to FOX NFL SUNDAY analyst Jimmy Johnson.

“We are honored and humbled at the level of participation and support we saw this year from FOX Sports,” said Mark Hedstrom, U.S. Country Director for the Movember Foundation. “We look forward to continuing this collaboration in 2015, with our main focus and priority on changing the face of men's health.”

FOX Sports Supports has become the industry leader in raising awareness for worthwhile causes like education, military, health awareness and human services. In the last seven years, it has supported 24 charities, from helping children with cancer to assisting military personnel and their families. Through public service announcements, events, verbal and special messages during FOX Sports programming, FOX Sports Supports has successfully raised awareness for several worthy charities, helping to generate millions of dollars in donations. In addition, the PSAs have received tens of millions of dollars’ worth of air time across all 21st Century Fox channels, helping to support causes such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Stand Up To Cancer, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, City of Hope, STOMP Out Bullying, Feeding America, Johns Hopkins Medicine and many more.

JIMMY JOHNSON RECEIVES 2015 PAUL “BEAR” BRYANT LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

The American Heart Association’s 29th annual Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards presented by Marathon Oil Corporation, announced that Jimmy Johnson, one of the most respected and accomplished football coaches in NCAA and NFL history, will be named the recipient of the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was presented to Johnson at the event on Jan. 14 in Houston.

There is no doubt that Johnson made a name for himself in the coaching world of football. His successful career spans an impressive range of coaching experience not only in the NCAA but also in the NFL, taking over for renowned coaches and becoming one of only three men to win an NCAA championship and a Super Bowl.

Johnson gained significant experience as an assistant coach for multiple colleges acquiring more responsibility with each position. After a solid five year stint as Oklahoma State's head coach, his head coaching career truly took off when he landed the same position at the University of Miami. His record from 1984 through 1988 was an astonishing 52-9, including a four year regular season record of 42-2 from 1985 through 1988.

Furthermore, as the no holds barred leader of a brash group of Hurricanes, he led Miami to the 1987 national championship. From 1989 to 1993, he proved his title as head coach for the Dallas Cowboys as he coached his team to win two back-to-back Super Bowls. His final coaching stint was taking over for Don Shula in 1996 to coach the Miami Dolphins where his team went to the playoffs three out of four seasons.

First awarded in 2000, the Paul “Bear” Bryant Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes the career accomplishments of the nation’s finest college football coaches. Among the past recipients of this award are R.C. Slocum (2014), LaVell Edwards (2013) and Hayden Fry (2012).

While the Lifetime Achievement Award highlights the achievements throughout a coach’s career, the Coach of the Year award, which is presented after each season’s bowl games, provides an opportunity to recognize a coach for an outstanding season. Finalists will be in attendance at the event along with Johnson to accept awards.

The American Heart Association’s Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards presented by Marathon Oil Corporation has raised over $5 million in the past 28 years to fund research, advocacy and educational programs across the country that are necessary for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and stroke. “Bear” Bryant died of a heart attack in 1983. He always talked about being bigger than something other than himself. The Bryant Awards offer an opportunity to do just that - to be a part of team Bryant in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
