NBC said it signed sportscaster Jim Lampley to host its coverage of the Summer Olympic Games in August on USA Network.

Lampley replaces MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann, who had been slotted to oversee MSNBC’s coverage of the Olympics. Some events that had been slated to run on MSNBC will now run on USA following NBC’s recent acquisition of the network.

NBC officials said they won’t detail the Olympics schedule on NBC, USA, MSNBC, CNBC and Telemundo until next week.
