CANALI to outfit NBC sportscasters at Olympic Games
Aug '08
Italian luxury menswear design label, CANALI, has partnered with NBC Sports to outfit the on-camera talent for coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The CANALI/NBC partnership was spearheaded by 19-time Emmy Award-winner, Bob Costas, who returns for his 7th Olympics as the Primetime Host.

CANALI, known for offering refined and sophisticated, tailored items worked with each sportscaster at individual fittings to compose both customized and camera-ready wardrobes.

NBC personalities each received several complete outfits including suits, sportswear, and accessories. Items range from custom made suits to ready to wear separates.

"We are proud and excited to have been selected by NBC Sports and the Olympic Games," said Elisabetta Canali, Global Director of Communications.

"We worked closely with NBC and each Olympic broadcast anchor to find the right fabrics and styles that would make them feel comfortable and pleasing to the eye."

CANALI will outfit sportscasters including Bob Costas, Cris Collinsworth, Jim Lampley, Bela Karolyi, Matt Vasgersian, Bill Patrick, Fred Roggin, Jimmy Roberts, Al Trautwig, and Tim Daggett.

The on air talent will wear CANALI for the entirety of the three weeks of Olympics coverage (August 8 - August 24, 2008).
