Longtime CBS Broadcaster Jim Nantz, 61, has inked a contract to remain at CBS for the foreseeable future.

According to John Ourad with Sports Business Journal, Nantz signed an extension for an unknown number of years.

The New York Post’s Andrew Marchand reports Nantz will receive a significant raise from his current $6.5 million salary, but that he will not match the $18 million per year that NFL booth partner Tony Romo received beginning last year. Nantz’s current deal was set to expire this spring.
