Hi,



Does anyone already know coverage plans of SKY News for the olympic games?



Are there special shows planned? Which anchors will be in Italy?

I doubt any anchors will be sent, Sky only had one reporter out for the summer olympics, I wouldnt be surprised if they didnt send anyone and relied on packages from London.



World Cup coverage should be interesting, they will have a few reporters/ correspondents of their own, as wll as using Sky Sports staff I would imagine. If England do well, I'm sure sending an anchor or two is likely.

I think people from Sky will be sent to the Commonwealth Games than the Olympic Games as there will be more people from the United Kingdom going to Australia in March than to Italy for the Olympic Games
