NBC officials are likely keeping their fingers crossed that no news of major importance occurs while the Olympics are underway this summer. Besides virtually non-stop coverage on the broadcast network -- details to be announced -- NBCUniversal said on Wednesday that its cable news channel MSNBC will be airing men's basketball, women's soccer and additional Olympics coverage from 9 00 a.m to 6 00 p.m. Eastern Time. CNBC will be focusing on boxing, including the newly introduced women's boxing, as part of six hours of daily Olympics coverage on that channel. Even NBCUniversal-owned Bravo will be brought into the act, focusing on the Tennis competition, which will be broadcast from Wimbledon. Finally, NBC-owned Telemundo will be covering key Olympics events in Spanish.
