We’re about a month away from the next Olympic Games which will be held in London. For those that didn’t know, London will become the first city to host the Olympic Games three times – the two previous being 1908 and 1948.
The 2012 Summer Olympic Games will start on July 27th and end on August 12th, where 205 nations will compete in 26 sports divided into 39 disciplines. This will be followed by the 2012 Paralympic Games, from August 29th to September 9th, where 147 nations will take part in the competition.
The excitement generated by the Olympics is worldwide and it will be followed globally through TV, Radio, Newspapers… and of course, the Web. The media has traditionally played a significant role in this event, although one can say that this role has evolved a lot since the last time the Olympics were held in London!
Once again, the BBC will be the main broadcaster providing a special program from July 25th to August 13th, and in addition, many UK radio stations will follow the event, a few of which follow below:
We look forward to see an amazing show, where athletes value progress over victory, respect over rivalry, and motivation over fear. We also hope the best for your favorite countries, athletes and disciplines. :)
