Turner Sports Expands AmEx Alliance With Ernie, Charles, Kenny, Shaq, Snoop

By Barry Janoff

October 10, 2017: With the NBA season just a week off, Turner Sports said it has expanded and enhanced its partnership with American Express, with the financial firm set to have more play on NBA on TNT, Inside the NBA and other Turner hoops-related programming and activation.

American Express has been the exclusive presenting sponsor for the NBA on TNT and NBA TV halftime shows, the American Express Halftime Report, since 2015.

Under terms of the new agreement, that sponsorship would continue and expand, as American Express becomes presenting sponsor for the NBA on TNT American Express Road Show during NBA Opening Night and NBA All-Star Weekend.

The NBA on TNT’s Inside the NBA has won numerous awards thanks to its on-air talent: Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal and Kenny Smith.

The NBA on TNT American Express Road Show debuts Oct. 17, Opening Day of the 2017-18 NBA season, from the San Francisco Bay Area.

The NBA defending champion Golden State Warriors open their schedule that night hosting the Houston Rockets (TNT).

Turner Sports said a day-long fan experience is scheduled to begin at Noon (PT), to include live studio telecasts, a variety of NBA on TNT attractions and a musical performance by Snoop Dogg.

(Turner said it has also collaborated with Snoop Dogg on the reboot of a classic game show for TBS, Snoop Dogg Presents Joker’s Wild, set to premiere Oct. 24.)

According to Turner Sports, NBA on TNT American Express Road Show would provide American Express with “significant on-air presence throughout the pre-game show, within the game and during post-game Inside the NBA show, as well as branding on-site at the NBA on TNT American Express Road Show venues and across NBA on TNT’s social media channels.”

“The NBA on TNT and NBA TV Halftime Shows are award-winning platforms that we know our card members and NBA fans love as a unique extension of the game itself,” Jill Hamilton, vp-U.S. media for American Express, said in a statement.

“Our partnership with Turner Sports will continue to be an important way for us to engage with NBA fans, as we look to deliver new benefits and experiences to card members and fans across the country, through live programming and experiences like the NBA on TNT and the American Express Road Show.”

The premiere NBA on TNT American Express Road Show is a 75,000 square-foot interactive space located at San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza (near City Hall).

"TNT’s Inside the NBA has won numerous awards thanks to its on-air talent: Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal and Kenny Smith."

It will be anchored by TNT’s Inside the NBA studio team of Johnson, Barkley, Smith and O’Neal providing live pre-game, halftime and post-game coverage from the venue.

In addition to NBA on TNT American Express Road Show’s live production, fan attractions will feature TNT personality-themed merchandise, food, drinks, premium giveaways and on-court activities.

Also scheduled are musical performances by DJ Platurn, a Jr. NBA clinic, meet-and-greets with Warriors legends, social media activations and an NBA on TNT-branded photo booth.

According to Jon Diament, evp-ad sales for Turner Sports, "We are excited to build upon our partnership with American Express. Harnessing the power of our unique experiential platforms like the NBA on TNT Road Show delivers memorable experiences for our fans, while also creating unique marketing opportunities for our sponsorship partners with live, premium audiences.”
