The wikipedia article on the 2010 Winter Olympics claims that CTV has the broadcasting rights for the 2010 Olympics. What about my Peter Mansbridge? And my Brian Williams? And the Olympic theme music!? Ashes! All is ashes!
It is sad but true. Having never broadcast the Olympics or sports for that matter, CTV has scooped the Games from CBC. Hopefully it won’t be a rah-rah coverage of Canadians that the NBC coverage tends to be.
CTV did a decent job when they did the Olympics in 1988 in Calgary. It was so much smaller back then so who knows how they’ll do. The amount of coverage should be the same with CTV, CTVSportsnet and French TVA. I’ll certainly miss the theme song tho, that tune is like crack!
