The International Olympic Committee has awarded NBCUniversal the broadcast rights in the USA for the Olympic Games through to 2032.
“This is one of the most important days in the history of NBCUniversal," said Steve Burke, CEO. "The Olympics are part of the fabric of our company, and we couldn’t be more excited that today’s announcement guarantees that this massively popular and profitable programming will continue to air every two years on the broadcast, cable, digital and mobile platforms of NBCUniversal for the next two decades."
NBCU previously acquired the right to be the IOC’s broadcast partner through to 2020 in June 2011, including the Games of the XXXI Olympiad in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2016, the XXIII Olympic Winter Games (2018) in PyeongChang, and the Games of the XXXII Olympiad (2020) in Tokyo. Host cities beyond that year have not yet been selected.
The agreement from 2021 to 2032 is valued at $7.65 billion, plus an additional $100 million signing bonus to be used for the promotion of Olympism and the Olympic values between 2015 and 2020.

Before her death in 2009, Brittany Murphy appeared in one last film, shot in Eugene. The movie premieres April 4 in Eugene, followed April 11 in Portland and April 18 in Seattle.
Producer Joe Colleran said Murphy, who appeared in such films as "Clueless" and "8 Mile," did not want to appear glamourous in the film, portraying a broken woman as she unravels.
That the film was Murphy's final performance made the editing process difficult, he said.
"Just emotional to go through the editing process and hearing her voice and seeing her outtakes and laughing," Colleran said. "So it's been an emotional process just even trying to get that together."
