NBC Sports Net to Light Up New Morning Show


NBC Sports Network will turn on the lights on a new morning show the day after the conclusion of the Summer Olympics.

The 'Lights will manifest in 20-minute segments, running from 7 a.m.-9 a.m. (ET), updating the loop as neccessary. In lieu of an on-camera anchor or set, the show will integrate a melange of video clips, graphics and voiceovers. Debuting on August 13, the show will presen the previous night's highlights and scores, and serve as a launching pad for NBC Sports Network's post-Games programming schedule, which also include Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports Talk.

"We are very excited to launch NBC Sports Network's new programming schedule," said Jon Miller, president of programming for NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network, in announcing the show."The 'Lights will serve as a catalyst for our new programming lineup, and will quickly provide sports fans all of the scores and highlights they crave as they start their day."
