PARIS and NEW YORK, May 31, 2022
– Tennis Channel and Bloomberg Television have
formed a partnership that will put each network in front of the other’s audiences during the 2022
French Open in Paris, underway now through June 5.
On weeknights, Bloomberg Television and Radio will present their audiences with a one-minute,
Tennis Channel-produced update on the latest news and highlights from the world’s most
prestigious clay-court tournament. Tennis Channel viewers will see a Bloomberg-produced daily
market recap on these days as well, similar in length. Bloomberg Television and Tennis Channel
on-air talent will present the reports.
“With this partnership, we are pleased to provide our audience this special programming around
the French Open, and to give the Tennis Channel’s audience access to some of Bloomberg’s
leading news coverage, as well,” said Al Mayers, global head of Bloomberg Television and
This is the second year of the partnership between Tennis Channel and Bloomberg Television.
They first began exchanging daily updates during Cincinnati’s Western & Southern Open in
August 2021, one of the sport’s top-level, Masters 1000 events. Later that month the networks
resumed their partnership for the 2021 US Open which, like the French Open, is one of the
sport’s four majors. In March 2022 Tennis Channel and Bloomberg Television renewed the
relationship during the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif., and the Miami Open. As with
Cincinnati, both are Masters 1000 events.
“Tennis Channel’s partnership with Bloomberg Television and Radio has allowed both parties to
capitalize on the similar demographics in our audiences and to bring added-value programming
to each network,” said Neil Roberts, executive director, Tennis Channel. “We’ve been really
pleased with the relationship and are happy to expand it to our coverage of one of the most
important events in all of sports.”
