NBC's rambling Olympic coverage sends sportscaster into a snit8/4/2012
Don't mess with a fellow sportscaster's beauty sleep. If viewer backlash about NBC's tape-delayed coverage of the Olympics isn't enough, Jacksonville sportscaster Dan Hicken went on an epic rant against Bob Costas and the network not ending the taped show on the dot and pushing the local news into the wee hours. "Bob, when it's 12 o'clock, you say good night!" Hicken roars, while First Coast News anchors Donna Deegan and Shannon Ogden try to keep their smiles pasted in place. "You don't care because you're sleeping right now. We're here on the East Coast working hard for your NBC family, Bob." Makes you wonder how much longer Hicken will be working hard for the NBC family.
Do you care if Olympic coverage is delaying local TV news?
