I’m still catching up from yesterday’s abscence. NBC announced yesterday what MSNBC.com will be doing in support of the Torino Olympics…
The all-inclusive Olympic Winter Games news provider for MSN, MSNBC.com’s news coverage of the Torino Games features a wide range of content including original analysis, videos, blogs, interactive features, slide shows, live votes and reports from Torino. Partnering with NBC News, the site will have reports from “Today” and “NBC Nightly News” including an exclusive daily blog, with both video and text from the “Today” show anchors, the “NBC Nightly News’” blog, “The Daily Nightly,” as well as interviews with athletes and reports from destinations around Italy. Located at http://Olympics.MSNBC.com, the dedicated Olympics news section also will have details on medal winners, medal count, rosters, TV listings, schedules and more.
MSNBC.com’s signature multimedia content is the cornerstone of its Olympic Winter Games news coverage. Interactive features include “It’s all downhill,” a skier’s view of the slopes with video of Bode Miller and audio from former Olympian Steve Mahre, and “Figure skating basics,” explaining the rules and moves of the Games’ most popular sport with flash animation and text. The MSNBC.com original feature “Close Up,” offers a multimedia look at one of figure skating’s biggest stars, Michelle Kwan, and alpine skiing’s most controversial and popular figures, Bode Miller. Photo slide shows of the events, athletes, ceremonies and the area will provide a glimpse into the action, the beautiful surroundings and the many emotional moments at the Torino Games.
