Dear JTCC Family,
We are delighted to extend an invitation to all of you to listen to a very special guest speaker at JTCC on Wednesday afternoon.
Speaker – Mary Carillo (French Open Mixed Doubles Champion & Hall of Fame International Sports Broadcaster)
Date – Wednesday, May 1
Time – 4 pm
Venue – JTCC Lobby
Bio – It is an understatement to say that Mary Carillo is one of the most respected announcers in the world of sport. One of only six women inducted into the International Sports Broadcasters Hall of Fame, Carillo launched her broadcasting career in tennis in 1980 and has since covered 14 Winter & Summer Olympic Games, among her varied assignments working for CBS, ESPN, and NBC.
As a player, Carillo reached #33 in the WTA singles rankings and is a former Grand Slam mixed doubles champion, winning the 1977 French Open with childhood friend and fellow commentator John McEnroe. With her personal experience on court, Carillo has offered candid and thoughtful analysis that has earned her a number of well-deserved accolades included being recognized on four occasions as the ‘Best Commentator’ by Tennis Magazine (1988-1991) and twice receiving the ‘Broadcaster of the Year’ award from the WTA (1981 and 1985).
In addition to covering live sports events-including the annual Westminster Dog Show (which she declares is one of her favorite events), Carillo has been a correspondent on HBO’s “Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel” for more than 20 years.
We look forward to seeing lots of you at 4 pm on Wednesday!
