USOC AND TWI JOIN TO CREATE FULL-TIME OLYMPIC VENTURES
Published February 2, 1998
The USOC and TWI formally announced that they have joined in a TV and marketing venture designed to create new events and programming centered around the Olympic movement in the U.S. The first project will be a 26-part series called "U.S. Olympic Gold," which will target NBC affils by feeding the half-hour shows bi-weekly to accommodate the stations' weekend sports schedules. The magazine-style show will profile American athletes training for the games and includes news and info on Olympic preparations. U.S. Olympic Gold is available to stations on a barter split for airing beginning in the '98 third quarter (USOC).
