LAUSANNE, Switzerland — The IOC's negotiator of U.S. broadcast deals says he expects NBC, ESPN and probably Fox to bid next month on the next set of lucrative Olympic rights.
IOC executive board member Richard Carrion tells The Associated Press at least two and "probably three" networks will be coming to Lausanne for the June 6-7 auction.
Carrion says the IOC is currently finalizing the bidding contracts with the networks.
He says "we expect NBC to be coming, we expect ABC-ESPN to be coming. We expect Fox also to be coming."
Carrion says he doesn't expect CBS to bid.
At stake are the rights to the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, and 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
It will be the first U.S. rights auction since 2003.
