Andy’s life in sport production began in 2002, when he became “The Voice of the U.S. Open.” Originally, his voice was simply heard introducing players and narrating ceremonies inside Arthur Ashe Stadium. Over the years, the role has grown tremendously, both within and beyond the tournament itself.
Before the start of the sport’s final Grand Slam, Andy voices television commercials to promote the US Open. He’s also been the voice of BBC Radio’s coverage of the fortnight, the stadium host for Arthur Ashe Kids Day, and voices every announcement heard throughout the USTA National Tennis Center.
When he’s not working a match on center court, introducing the athletes for player walk-on or voicing a live ceremony, Andy is narrating video production that will play throughout the venue. When needed, the USTA will even yank him from the booth to interview legends of the game or host trophy ceremonies.
Whether he’s describing how Armstrong Stadium is full to capacity, awarding a trip to Dubai, cutting-up with John McEnroe, or detailing Serena’s amazing career, it is Andy Taylor’s voice in the fan’s ear — narrating, informing.
