CHECKING IN ON NBC'S PRE-'96 AD SALES
Published November 28, 1994
IBM is "closing in on a deal" to buy ad time on NBC's coverage of the '96 Games, and Olympic sales at NBC's O&Os "are going strong as well. However, AT&T missed an opportunity to fend off attack ads in the long-distance and telecommunications field on the O&Os when it let a recent deadline pass to make an exclusive buy in the category." The buy would have been $25M. AT&T Media and Production Services Dir Mike Neavill cited the cost and timing (the Games are still 18 months away) as the main considerations (Brockington & Ross, COWLES BUSINESS MEDIA, 11/24).
