Dwyane Wade has jumped on a multi-year deal with WarnerMedia, which assigns the former NBA star different roles to play in the media house.
In agreement according to the contract, Dwyane will come on board as a commentator, making appearances on TNT’s NBA event coverage and serving as a regular analyst for the network’s Tuesday night studio coverage alongside Shaquille O’Neal and Candace Parker, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
“I’m thrilled and grateful to be joining the WarnerMedia family with many exciting opportunities ahead. I have great respect for TNT’s team of analysts and their longstanding commitment to quality sports coverage. After 16 seasons in the NBA, I look forward to connecting with my fans in this new role and bringing my own perspective to the game I love,” said Dwyane in a statement.
In addition to the many responsibilities coming his way, Dwyane will also appear in studio at the NCAA Final Four National Championship as part of Turner Sports’ coverage of the annual collegiate tournament.
Also, Dwyane’s production company 59th & Prairie Entertainment has also inked a development deal with WarnerMedia to create a number of new projects to be revealed at a later date.
“Dwyane is a special talent. He’s a transcendent star with a charismatic, engaging and thoughtful personality on and off the court. We’re thrilled to welcome him to the WarnerMedia family and we could not be more excited to partner with him on these special projects,” said WarnerMedia News and Sports chairman Jeff Zucker.
