How Does Jim Lampley Feel About Not Being a Part of the London Olympics?

FishbowlLA’s Marcus Vanderberg recently talked with HBO Sports announcer and former NBC Olympics anchor Jim Lampley about his career for “So What Do You Do” interview. Marcus also asked a few bonus questions which went up on FBLA yesterday, including:

FBLA: What does it say about the current state of Olympic coverage when the broadcaster who’s anchored a record 14 games won’t be working in London but Ryan Seacrest will be?

Lampley: Well, everything changes. I have to confess that I looked around at Beijing and among the many things I thought was, “We got old.” This group doesn’t change a lot from year to year and there’s certainly a benefit to that continuity. But on the other hand, I don’t see the number of young faces here like 10, 12, 16 years ago. Whether it involved me or anybody else, change was inevitable. Change was probably timely and I like watching it on TV.
