Rio #1- The Countdown Begins
This is my 6th Olympic Games in TV and like the first 5 my emotions are running wild. But, rather dwell on any negatives that are haunting Rio, I want to focus on the amazing things that make these games special in both competition, TV Production and Friendship. That is the goal of this BLOG, for the most part …
I am once again honored with the opportunity to be a director for NBC and it’s Family of Networks, and, like I did in Beijing, I am assigned to Men’s and Women’s Indoor Volleyball. My team (Announcers, Production and Technical) is phenomenal and Team USA (Men’s & Women’s) are extreme medal favorites.
Like always, as part of the NBC Production Team, I will be surrounded by some of the best Producers, Directors & Announcers in American Sports Television.
For the next 30 days, I will be posting on this BLOG and sharing my adventures up to and through Rio. This ride will take us in and out of my venue. You can receive alerts when the new BLOG is posted on my INSTAGRAM (jawprods) or TWITTER (Jasonwald3) pages.
Needless to say, I am excited, nervous and already homesick but none of that matters because I am driven to make sure that Rio will leave me and those who follow my journey with indelible memories that truly define the spirit of sport, friendship and peace … The Games of the XXXI Olympiad.
Love to all,
