Published October 18, 1994
Reebok signed an estimated $25M deal with NBC to be the exclusive athletic shoe advertiser on NBC's '96 Summer Olympic broadcast. Reebok has yet to sign on as a national sponsor of the Atlanta Games, but, according to Reebok spokesperson Dave Fogelson, negotiations are continuing with ACOG and the USOC. Nike sponsors the U.S. Track & Field team. Reebok joins Coke, Anheuser-Busch, GM and McDonalds as NBC sponsors (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 10/18). Reebok was an official broadcast sponsor of NBC's coverage of the '88 and '92 Summer Games (REEBOK).
