Lifson assumed his new position September 20th but will remain with TVG through the Keeneland fall race meet.
"We're just growing and have had an influx of clients," said Terry Finley, West Point founder and president. "We have a good core group of people, but guys like Jeff, with his background, are not available very often."
"It is an incredible opportunity," Lifson said. "West Point is a first-rate partnership program and they want to expand. Now, I am going to feel like an 'insider.' TVG was a great place to work and I am going to miss the people there. They (TVG Network) are going to be here forever."
Prior to joining TVG, Lifson was with WHAS-TV in Louisville, Ky., where his positions included sports director and weekend anchor.
