NBC, Ameritrade strike a major deal, sources say
Published June 12, 2000
NBC has cut a 2000 Olympics ad agreement with Ameritrade that is valued at nearly $14 million, industry sources said.
The network declined comment. NBC did, however, confirm that it has sold more than $800 million worth of advertising time for its broadcast of the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney.
Sources said the network has about $90 million left to sell to reach its Sydney Games sales target.
