  • NBC Preps Unfolding in "Physically Beautiful" Rio -- ATRadio


    (ATR) NBC Olympics executive producer Jim Bell says the scenery in Rio could make for a memorable Games.

    "I think Rio is arguably the most physically beautiful city that we've had in our considerable Olympic run to host an Olympics," said Bell.

    "I've got a soft spot for Barcelona, but I think Rio, just in terms of the physical spectacle of this mashup of jungle and forest and beach and mountain just takes it to a whole different level."

    Bell also discussed the return of golf to the Olympic program, the expanded coverage of the Paralympics and more.
