1968: Grenoble (ABC Sports, 27 hours, $2.5 million)
Broadcasters (in part):
Hosts: Chris Schenkel, Jim McKay (McKay handled opening, closing ceremonies)
Play-by-play: McKay (Alpine skiing)
Play-by-play: Schenkel (figure skating)
Play-by-play: Curt Gowdy (hockey)
Analyst: Dick Button (figure skating)
Analyst: Art Devlin (ski jumping)
By this time, Keith Jackson and Bill Flemming were also on staff and had roles in the coverage, but I don't recall what.
The Opening ceremony and the ladies figure skating final were televised live via satellite; most other coverage was satellited to ABC and run off tape from New York. The first Winter Olympics televised in color (except for a couple of events the French fed in black-and-white).
