Mary Carillo to remain at Tennis Channel


One of the more versatile broadcasters will remain at Tennis Channel through 2016. Mary Carillo has signed a three year contract extension to expand her role at Tennis Channel. She's already a host on the French and U.S. Opens as well as Wimbledon. 

Carillo's new contract will allow her to cover more tournaments and make additional studio appearances on the network. 

Mary joined Tennis Channel in 2011 after an undisclosed dispute with ESPN. She has continued to work for CBS, NBC and HBO during that period and will continue to do so.

Carillo is not only known for her tennis commentary which is very good, but also her fine reporting of various topics including the Nancy & Tonya documentary that ran last week before the Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony.

And while Tennis Channel continues to struggle to pick up contracts with the cable providers, it still has some major talent on its network.
