    "Turin Winter Olympics 2006 - Schedule & Info Sharing"






    NBC stations to have 416 hours of televised events, 40 more than Salt Lake


    NEW YORK - The Turin Olympics will be the most televised Winter Games with 416 hours of coverage, an increase of more than 40 hours from the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.

    There will be about 200 hours of live television coverage during the Feb. 10-27 games on the NBC Universal networks - NBC, USA, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC HD and Universal HD. There were about 140 hours of live coverage from Salt Lake City.

    The coverage, details of which were announced Tuesday, will average about 24 hours a day over all the networks.

    There will be regular updates and a late-night Olympic highlight show on Telemundo, NBC's Spanish-language network.

    USA, MSNBC and CNBC will have a total of 233 hours of coverage, about 75 percent of which will be live.

    All 54 games of both the men's and women's hockey tournaments will be shown live on the networks.

    Bob Costas will return as the prime-time Olympic host for the sixth time. He has won Emmy Awards for the previous five times he was NBC's prime-time host.

    Jim Lampley will anchor the daytime and late-night Olympic telecasts. It is his sixth Olympics with NBC and 13th overall, surpassing Jim McKay for the most Olympic assignments for a television announcer.

    Dick Button is joining NBC's coverage. He will co-host "Olympic Ice," a show on USA that will focus on figure skating. The 1948 gold medalist also will provide analysis during the figure skating pairs competition.





    FYI: All times listed at the above link are for the 'Eastern Time Zone'.

    Can't wait for the games to begin!!

    My sister-in-law's sister's son, a Secret Service agent, was head of the Ski Patrol at the Salt Lake City Olympics. They had a picture of him in Newsweek, including a diagram, showing all of the special equipment, including weapons, that he carried in his ski outfit at the time.

    Favorite Event?


    It all begins tonight with the "Opening Ceremonies" - Can't wait!!!

    "Figure Skating" is my favorite event.

    I absolutely love watching the skating performances! Guess you could call me 'a figure skating junkie' as I follow it like most other fans follow football. <lol>

    All the skaters are so far advanced than when my Dad participated in the Olympics. (1932 in Lake Placid & again in 1936) The caliber of skating performances just gets better & better every year, it seems.

    Dad had me on a pair of tiny ice skates (made especially for me) from the time I could stand up & take a few steps. Dad added a little pillow in the tush of my snowsuit and I balanced by holding onto the back of a child's small wood & wicker chair - pushing it across the ice. What a sight that was! LOL

    I'm so glad to still have the photographs Mom took as that was a very l-o-n-g time ago and I may not have believed I was actually on ice skates at 10 mo. old otherwise. I'm sure Dad thought that someday I'd be the next Sonja Henie or Maribel Vincent (two of his skating partners). But, alas - it was never meant to be. Not even close - lol. Oh well - hey, I can still enjoy watching and recalling many endearing memories of my very special Dad.

    Anyone else have a favorite event - or events?

    Any specific olympians or teams that you are pulling for?

    I am also a bit of a hockey fan, and I am pulling for the CANADIAN team!! I am hoping the Tocchet/Gretzky gambling scandal does not negatively impact our Canadian team.

    I am also very interested in Men's nordic combined as we have a neighbor competing, a really nice young man who used to babysit my kids. We also know another young man who used to ski with my daughter's ski club, skiing downhill for Canada. We will be watching these events with great interest. It is so exciting to know some people who have made it to the Olympics, and to know the sacrifices they have made to get there.
