NBC announced that Kristi would be doing coverage for them a few months ago - so it might be more like ABC reacted by hiring Michelle.

Thanks for sharing. I'll begin recording the Today show daily starting tomorrow as the Olympics are set to begin.
nice job--hopefully the family will be there--
actually--kristi was hired way back in july i think --or sometime then-because that is when it was first announced.
but anyway--will be switching back and forth -because i have no tape playing device.

they figure skating has basically admitted it has done this way always-will keep it up why-they like controversy-(in other words unfair play and unfair winners ) why they want the money at all and any cost no matter which skaters, dreams or hopes gets hurt.
olympic is more important than deathy- sorry-but no athlete should be dead because of sport-it isn't worth it. yes you train and yes crashes are part of the picture-but no one pictures death, injuries yes--death no--.

Who saw Michelle on GMA yesterday? I thought Michelle looked great and appeared so much more relaxed and herself on than she did when she did guest spots on NBC.
