Jenn Sterger, the former New York Jets hostess involved in the Brett Favre "sexting" scandal, will give her first interview since the incident to George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America this week, USA Today reported. The two-part interview will air on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sterger has maintained a low profile since October when the story broke that Favre had sent her lewd voice messages and photographs while both were working for the Jets in 2008.

The Deadspin website published the messages and an alleged photo of the quarterback's privates that allegedly had been sent to the former model, 27.

Favre later admitted to leaving messages but denied sending the photos. The NFL fined him $50,000 in December for a lack of cooperation in its investigation, but did not determine that he violated the league's conduct policy.

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke is set to become the majority owner of the British soccer club Arsenal, the second NFL owner to be in control of an English Premier League team. The Glazer family, which owns the Buccaneers, also owns Manchester United. Kroenke already owns 30 percent of the club and is set to purchase another 32 percent. Then, as majority owner, he must offer to buy out all the remaining shareholders. Arsenal is valued at about $1.25 billion.

COLLEGES: Former La Salle center Aaric Murray, a sophomore who decided to transfer, returned from a visit to Oklahoma State. The 2009-10 Big Five rookie of the year will visit DePaul next. West Virginia is also under consideration.

Freire Charter grad Ramon Galloway, a sophomore guard who averaged 10.7 points a game at South Carolina, has given an oral commitment to transfer to LaSalle. He must sit out next season.

Minnesota Duluth won its first NCAA hockey title when Kyle Schmidt scored in overtime to give the Bulldogs a 3-2 overtime victory over Michigan in the championship game in St. Paul, Minn.

Sophomore Carl Jones and freshman Langston Galloway were named co-winners of the John P. Hilferty Memorial Award as the MVPs of the 2010-11 St. Joseph's basketball team.

St. Joe's 1980-81 team was inducted into the school's men's basketball Hall of Fame. The squad, coached by Jim Lynam, went 25-8 and reached the NCAA Elite Eight, but is perhaps most remembered for its last-second win over No. 1 DePaul in the NCAA second round, one of the top upsets in college basketball history.

Temple's men's varsity eight and second varsity eight won gold medals, and the Owls' lightweight four won silver at the 2011 Knecht Cup Sunday on the Cooper River.

In Houston, Ryan Sweeting held off Japan's Kei Nishikori, 6-4 7-6 (3), to win the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship for his first ATP World Tour title.

HORSE RACING: Joyful Victory solidified her status as one of the top choices for next month's Kentucky Oaks with a seven-length victory over the previously undefeated Arienza in the Grade 2, $300,000 Fantasy at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark. She races for Wilmington, Del., native Rick Porter's Fox Hill Farm.
