WWE thinks it will be able to announce its television rights partner by either the end of April or the beginning of May, according to a report from Business Week.

“We think we’ll be able to announce a new domestic rights partner at the end of April or beginning of May,” WWE executive George Barrios told Business Week.

Barrios also told Business Week that the WWE is in talks with “multiple parties” about a deal.

“When you boil down the numbers we have larger live, same-day viewers than anything on cable,” Barrios said. “We have a passionate fanbase that follows us wherever we are.”
