» Kelly Kretschman Olympic Page
Comcast Cable, the country's leading cable and broadband communications provider, today announced that it will temporarily provide MSNBC for the Summer Olympics and just in time to watch Kelly Kretschman and the U.S.A. softball team hopefully win the gold medal.
Kelly Kretschman is a resident of Tuscaloosa and a member of the U.S.A. softball team. Comcast learned that the Olympic Softball competition would be shown on MSNBC, which is currently not on the Tuscaloosa channel lineup. To provide coverage of the Olympics and based on customer demand, Comcast will temporarily provide programming offered by MSNBC beginning August 10 through August 29 on Comcast Channel 78.
"We know how important the Olympic coverage is to our customers, especially since we have a local person, Kelly Kretschman, on the U.S.A. softball team," said Jeff Osborne, area general manager for Comcast in Central Alabama. "We are pleased to be able to provide this benefit to our customers of Tuscaloosa."
