NCAA Tournament hits the Bleachers

Bleacher Report is getting the spotlight for Turner Sports and CBS Sports’ coverage of the 2015 NCAA Final Four National Semifinals, which take place on April 4, starting at 6p. With three different viewing options available to fans across TBS, TNT and truTV, the four team-specific telecasts on TNT and truTV will go under the moniker of “Team Stream Presented by Bleacher Report.” Jim Nantz will provide commentary for TBS’ coverage with analysts Grant Hill and Bill Raftery and reporter Tracy Wolfson. This year’s coverage will also include an increased amount of integrated elements between the on-air presentation and Bleacher Report to further enhance the fan experience across all platforms. “Associating our team-specific coverage of the NCAA Final Four on TNT and truTV with Bleacher Report is a natural evolution given the popularity of Bleacher Report and its industry-leading ability to connect with fans at the teams and topics level,” said Lenny Daniels, President of Turner Sports. “We believe combining our on-air treatment with our leading digital assets will offer fans an even better experience across all platforms.”
