Grouse Mountain will host America’s most watched morning news program during the 2010 Olympic Games.
Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, Al Roker and Ann Curry of NBC’s Today Show will be reporting live from Grouse Mountain.
It will be the four anchors’ second time broadcasting from an international Olympics, with the Beijing Olympics being the first.
Grouse Mountain communications manager William Mbaho said that excitement levels are extremely high.
“We are tremendously excited that NBC is coming here,” said Mbaho. “We know that this is a fantastic opportunity to showcase Vancouver and British Columbia.”
Grouse Mountain’s overall proximity to Vancouver and its “unbeatable views of the city” also attracted NBC’s attention, said Mbaho.
“We worked long and hard to secure the interest of NBC,” he said.
Grouse Mountain will be open 24 hours a day for the duration of the Games, which was of obvious interest to NBC because they will be broadcasting from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m., said Mbaho.
Grouse Mountain will offer different attractions during the Games.
“The four-season-resort nature of Grouse Mountain means that we do have activities that run year round such as zip lining,” said Mbaho. “There is plenty of activity going on and this will be round the clock.
“The Olympics are an event of great magnitude and we’re very excited and very proud to be part of it.”
