The Tennis Channel has announced that long-time tennis broadcaster Mary Carillo will join the network for its coverage of both the French and U.S. Opens.
Carillo is slated to work at the network’s anchor desk as well as offer analysis and play-by-play.
“What executive producer wouldn’t want to add Mary Carillo to their broadcast team?” said Larry Meyers, executive producer and senior vice president, production, Tennis Channel. “We continue to build upon the group of incredible people who cover the French Open for Tennis Channel. The chance to bring Mary into a lineup that already includes McEnroe, Navratilova, Davenport, Macatee, (Ted) Robinson and (Ian) Eagle is another great opportunity for us and our viewers. We really feel like there’s no other sport in the world that has this level of talent covering it on one network.”
Since her retirement from the game in 1980 Carillo has worked for CBS, NBC, and ESPN, HBO, USA, and Bravo covering tennis and other sporting events.
Coverage of the French Open on The Tennis Channel begins May 22nd.
