Several TVNewser readers have emailed asking what might happen if news breaks during MSNBC/CNBC or NBC News Olympics coverage. One wondered specifically about the Vice Presidential picks — which would be named during the Olympics if they are not named during the conventions directly after.
MSNBC will broadcast 12 hours of Olympics programming each day, with an additional two hours for a wrap-up show.
An MSNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser: “In the case of breaking news during Olympics coverage, executives in news and sports will determine how best to bring the story to our audience.”
So, it sounds like it will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Stay tuned.
Also, as for the results of yesterday’s Olympics poll, 33% thought the big story coming out of Beijing would be “Air Pollution.”
