The best-kept secrets for your Vancover Olympics coverage


Friday’s media column will focus on the work done these last two weeks by the Universal Sports network, an NBC-owned cable channel based in Westlake Village (recently relocated from Glendale) that has been doing a live 7 a.m. to noon block of TV every day that includes live updates, journalism roundtables, extended figure skating shows and plenty more long-form information segments that just don’t fit otherwise into the NBC block of channels.

Terry Gannon and Lindsay Soto, above, are two of the main anchors based in Vancouver, but Craig Hummer is in the San Fernando Valley-based studio doing the live reports at the top of each hour — no video clips because they’re still saving that for the NBC prime-time stuff, but at least a way to feel connected.
