NBC releases partial Olympic TV listings; Three wrestling segments planned


NBC released its "Sydney 2000 Olympic Games - NBC, MSNBC, CNBC Partial Listings" on August 31, 2000. The 46-page document listed the highlights of the coverage on the three channels.

Coverage of wrestling is included three times in the listings provided by the network, all on the parent NBC network. Wrestling is not listed in the highlights of coverage on MSNBC and CNBC.

According to the NBC document, "the attached listings is not intended to be a complete rundown of every sport and event which will be shown during the 441 1/2 hours of coverage on NBC, MSNBC and CNBC. These listings, which are subject to change, offer daily highlights of the Olympics programming on NBC, MSNBC and CNBC. During the Olympic Games, please consult for the most complete daily listings."

On Wednesday, September 27, the Greco-Roman Super Heavyweight final (expected to feature Russia's three-time Olympic champion Alexander Karelin), is listed in the 7:00 p.m. - midnight time slot on NBC.

On Saturday, September 30, the freestyle wrestling finals are listed in the 12:30 a.m. - 2:00 a.m. time slot on NBC. Gold and bronze medal matches at 54 kg, 63 kg, 76 kg and 97 kg will be held that day.

On Sunday, October 1, the freestyle wrestling finals are listed in the 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. time slot on NBC. Gold and bronze medal matches at 58 kg, 69 kg, 85 kg and 130 kg will be held that day.

Officials at NBC have indicated that these are not the complete listings, and they are subject to change. They also indicated that wrestling may appear more times than listed in the partial listings document. Fans are encouraged to check the web page each day during the wrestling competition, which is set for Sept. 23-Oct. 1, to see if any additional coverage of wrestling will be included.
