NEW NBC OLYMPIC ON-LINE SITE "LIKE A 100 PAGE BOOK" OF INFO
Published March 19, 1996
NBC has announced a new on-line site to supplement and publicize its on-air coverage of the '96 Games. "NBC Presents the Games of the XXVI Olympiad" is accessible on the network's Web site at http://www.olympic.nbc.com and through NBC SuperNet Sports on the Microsoft Network (go word: NBC). Feature areas include: Athlete Profile of the Week; Golden Moments; Day-in- the-Life of an Olympic Hopeful; Sport-by-Sport previews; and a nightly "Golden Chat" with notable personalities (NBC). NBC's Ed Markey said the network has yet to sell advertising on the site and, "for now," will use the site it to promote Games coverage. The site will be managed by a staff on-site in Atlanta during the Games (Jeffrey Scott, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/19).
