Olympics coverage continues tonight on WDAM

WDAM will continue airing the Olympics tonight at 6:30 p.m.

The 10 p.m. broadcast of local news will be delayed on our analog channel, but can be seen live on digital channel 7.3, which usually airs NBC Weather Channel Plus.

The NBC network schedule is divided into three dayparts: afternoon, primetime and late night - for a total of 225 hours of coverage over 17 days beginning with the Opening Ceremony on Friday, Aug. 8, at 7 p.m.

Primetime on NBC will feature live coverage of all 32 swimming gold medal finals; four key nights of men's and women's gymnastics led by the women's and men's team gold medal finals, as well as the women's and men's individual gold medal finals; beach volleyball; and, for the first time ever, both men's and women's marathons.

The first week of the Olympics features gymnastics and swimming, two sports in which the USA is especially strong this year.

NBC Universal, broadcasting its record 11th Olympics and surpassing ABC for the most Olympics broadcast by any network, will present an unprecedented 3,600 hours of Beijing Olympic Games coverage, the most ambitious single media project in history.

The 2008 Olympic Games from Beijing, China represent the 11th Olympics broadcast by NBC, surpassing ABC's 10 Olympics for the most Olympic broadcasts by any U.S. network.
