Longtime tennis announcer Bud Collins has signed a multiyear on-air deal with the Tennis Channel.
Mr. Collins, who spent years with NBC Sports, also recently signed to cover major tournaments on ESPN.
Under his new deal, Mr. Collins will appear on Tennis Channel original series, offer live commentary during the network’s tournament coverage and represent the network throughout the year. He also will have a role on the network’s Web site.
“We couldn’t be more honored to have Bud’s expertise and informed opinions in-house full-time,” Tennis Channel CEO Ken Solomon said in a statement Wednesday. “There’s no better year-round home for ‘Mr. Tennis’ than right here on Tennis Channel, and we’re excited about what he’s going to bring to our telecasts and to our tennis-savvy audience, and what we’re going to be able to do to expand Bud’s unique brand across multiple media platforms.”
