While speaking at the Promax & BDA conference in N.Y. yesterday, NBC Universal TV Group President Jeff Zucker said the network was in a "rebuilding phase" -- and that sports was a big part of it. NBC and its cable empire will carry the Winter Olympics from Italy in February, and in fall 2006 will have "Sunday Night Football" with newly signed analyst John Madden and a play-by-play man to be named later.
"Sports is going to play a critical role in the rebuilding of NBC primetime," Zucker said.
