Media Notes: Eurosport To Broadcast A Record 280 Hours Of Tour De France Coverage

Pan-European network Eurosport "has confirmed its plans for the 100th Tour de France, announcing that it will be broadcasting a record 280 hours of dedicated coverage, including 87 hours of live HD action" (DIGITAL SPY, 6/12). ... Greek athletics President Kostas Panagopoulos believes that "the government's closure of public broadcaster ERT is a disaster for the sport." ERT "was Greek athletics' main outlet for broadcasting" and with its current status in limbo following the government's decision to close the organization due to austerity measures, Panagopoulos fears for the future exposure of the sport in the birthplace of the Olympics (REUTERS, 6/16).
