Published June 6, 2011
Bodenheimer did say that Walt Disney President & CEO Bob Iger was on his way to Switzerland and would arrive in time to join ESPN for its presentation to the IOC tomorrow morning, which is 9:30am local time, 3:30am ET. That presentation will be followed by NBC, which presents at a 12:30pm local time, 6:30am ET. An NBC spokesperson declined to comment on whether or not the network rehearsed today. After NBC's presentation, the IOC will accept sealed bids from all three networks and begin deliberating over whom it will award the Olympic rights. It hopes to announce the winner by 12:00pm ET.
