PHILADELPHIA - As mentioned in previous e-mails, NBC’s coverage of this year’s Penn Relays on April 30 was basically cut in half due to an NHL Stanley Cup playoff game going into overtime. After an announcement was made regarding a re-broadcast of the show, an amendment has been made by NBC.
The full-hour show will be “fed” to NBC’s affiliates around the country at noon ET on Sunday, May 21. However, each affiliate will then determine what time the show will air in its area. For example, WNBC in the Metropolitan New York City area will air the show around midnight on Sunday, right after the post-news sports show (“Mike’d Up”).
Check your local listings for the time in your area. If you cannot locate the show, contact your local NBC affiliate.

The show includes coverage of the six USA vs the World relay races, which include the men’s 4x100, with new world record holder Justin Gatlin on the anchor leg of one of the U.S. teams, and an exciting duel between Bernard Lagat (representing the U.S. for the first time) and Kenya’s Alex Kipchirchir on the anchor leg of the distance medley.
