Will Funk
Executive Vice President, Sports Partnerships and Branded Content

Turner Sports


An early advocate of the fit between legal sports betting and sports telecasts, Funk manages relationships with Turner properties that bring varied appetites for gambling-related content, from the leading-edge NBA to the less enthused NCAA. He’s bullish on the fit for sports betting on Turner’s millennial and Gen Z-oriented Bleacher Report, which plans a branded studio at the sportsbook at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
