NBC RENEWS WITH USGA FOR U.S. OPEN AND OTHER CHAMPIONSHIPS
Published December 11, 1997
NBC and the U.S. Golf Association (USGA) have agreed to a new four-year TV contract extension beginning in 2000, which keeps the U.S. Open on NBC through 2003. Under the new deal, NBC will continue to retain exclusive U.S. broadcast rights to the U.S. Open, the U.S. Women's Open, the U.S. Senior Open and the U.S. Amateur championships. NBC will also continue to produce its U.S. Open Preview and annual Year in Review shows. NBC's current deal with the USGA began in '95 and runs through '99 (NBC Sports). In N.Y., Richard Sandomir reports that the new contract will cost NBC about $18M a year (N.Y. TIMES, 12/11).
