After more than 25 years, Fox Sports Southwest is out and Bally Sports is in due to a rebrand.

The change affects all 19 regional networks previously owned by Fox Sports. Fox Sports Southwest hasbecome a staple for Spurs fans in San Antonio who would rather enjoy Sean Elliott and Bill Land's play-by-play commentary rather than other sports world figures.

Elliott, Land and Matt Bonner are all staying onboard. Anchor Ric Renner promoted the new era on Twitter by showing off the new studio.
