USWNT’s Rampone, Lloyd, and O’Reilly Appear on Today Show
US Women’s National Soccer Team members Christie Rampone, Carli Lloyd, and Heather O’Reilly chatted with NBC Today Show hosts Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales about the upcoming Olympics, last year’s World Cup, and motherhood.
But they failed to mention that their Olympics sendoff friendly will be on NBC this Saturday afternoon! Not on NBC Sports, not on Universal Sports, on the National Friggin’ Broadcasting Company. When’s the last time a Women’s International Friendly was aired on broadcast television in the United States, if ever? And they fail to plug it on that very network’s flagship morning show.
This is especially frustrating with the massive attention NBC is giving Olympics Swimming this week; the Today Show was heavily promoting all-week nightly network coverage of the USA Olympics Swimming trials.
