The multiyear contract will feature Cruz as part of the cable operator’s “Enjoy Sports Better” initiative that will kick off in September. Previously, Time Warner Cable has used actors Ricky Gervais, Robert De Niro and Mary-Louise Parker in the campaign.
Time Warner Cable would not say how much it is spending on the campaign. The effort will involve television, radio, print and outdoor.
Cruz will make weekly appearances on Time Warner Cable’s New York news channels NY1 and NY1 Noticias and has agreed to appear at New York events on behalf of the company.
