Turner Sports is booking a whole new era of sports programming, announcing a first-of-its-kind agreement with Caesars Entertainment to develop gaming-related content for sports fans around the world. Caesars Palace Las Vegas will also be home to a Bleacher Report branded studio originating from inside its sports book that will serve as the central hub for the creation of gaming-related programming and editorial content to be regularly distributed through Bleacher Report and the B/R App. Caesars will be featured as a Bleacher Report gaming partner including sponsorship integration across a wide array of content offerings and distribution platforms and be a presenting sponsor of select programming airing across Turner’s linear networks, in addition to opportunities for co-produced programing and events.
“The sports gaming industry is rapidly growing and Turner is poised to be an industry leader in the development of gaming-related content experiences,” said Lenny Daniels, President of Turner Sports. “Gaming content will be a key driver for increasing fan engagement across all platforms, including time spent watching live sporting events and other criteria that impact television viewership. We’re excited to form this groundbreaking relationship with Caesars, a proven leader in sports gaming, as we collaborate to deliver the best gaming-related content experiences for our fans.”
