Wimbledon television coverage is ceasing to broadcast on NBC after doing so for 43 years. ESPN looks to be the successor to NBC for future years. According to NBC, they were "simply outbid and would have liked to continue their relationship."
There has been confirmation that ESPN is in the process of working on a contract with the All England Club to be the broadcaster of the Grand Slam tournament. ESPN has not made any official announcements yet, however the change was first reported by the SportsBusiness Journal. ESPN was a broadcaster this year of the early rounds of Wimbledon, but as play progessed and the finals approached, broadcasting switched to NBC as it did for the past 43 years.
This was the 32nd year that "Breakfast at Wimbledon" took place, with televised coverage ending on Sunday with Novak Djokovic's victory over Rafael Nadal in the finals, 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3.
