CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — CBS has signed a three-year contract to televise the Family Circle Cup's semifinal and championship matches.

The tournament was carried on NBC for 26 years before it moved to Fox Sports in 1998.

Tournament organizers agreed in March to move the Family Circle Cup from Hilton Head Island, where it had been played for 28 years, to Charleston. The city is building a 17-court tennis center on Daniel Island, including a grandstand that could seat 10,000 during the tournament.
