WNYT's Catalon gets another Olympic Games assignment

WNYT's Catalon gets another Olympic Games assignment

Third Olympics for Catalon.

NBC13 (WNYT) sports reporter and weekend anchor Andrew Catalon has another Olympic Games assignment.

Catalon will call several tennis matches from Wimbledon during the Games in London July 27-Aug. 12. NBC announced its announcers lineup Thursday.

The Olympic tennis will be shown on Bravo starting July 28. The tennis competition lasts just the first week of the Games.

This will be Catalon's third Olympics assignment. In the 2008 Summer Games from Beijing, he called team handball from NBC's New York studios. Two years ago, he did curling from the Winter Games in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Catalon is no stranger to calling tennis matches. He has worked for CBS Sports on its 3D coverage of the U.S. Open the last two years.

"Honored to be working my 3rd Olympics for NBC," Catalon tweeted. "As a tennis fan, I'm beyond thrilled to be doing tennis play-by-play from Wimbledon."
