Cricket: Gower will bat for Sky.
He will join Sky for next summer's Cricket World Cup and will also front Sky's live summer and winter cricket coverage for the next four years.
Gower worked for Sky on three overseas tours before he joined the BBC on a year-by-year basis in 1995.
He said yesterday: "It is an exciting time for cricket and a wonderful time to be joining Sky Sports.
"To work on 26 live matches for the World Cup is a mouth-watering prospect, but to follow that with four summers of live international and domestic cricket sealed it for me.
"I will be reunited with old Test colleagues like Ian Botham, Paul Allott and Bob Willis.
"Sky Sports will show nearly 100 days of live cricket every summer, plus winter tours, so it will be hectic - but I'm looking forward to it."
Mark Nicholas, the former Hampshire and England A captain, will front Channel 4's cricket coverage next year, after three years with Sky.
