What to Watch on Olympic CBS

By Teresa Huang
Staff Reporter

The XVIII Winter Olympic Games are taking place right now in Nagano, Japan, and you don't want to miss the action. Women's hockey, curling, and snowboarding are official events for the first time this year, and a slew of figure skaters from the United States, including Michelle Kwan, Tara Lipinski, and Todd Eldredge, have a real chance at capturing the gold. There's a 14-hour difference between MIT and Nagano, so if you want constant updates, visit the official Winter Games site at http://www.nagano.olympic.org. If you'd rather view the action as it happens, check out the following schedule of Olympic coverage that will air on CBS, which is WBZ-4 in Boston. Check online for additional coverage by TNT. For now, grab your highlighter, look over the schedule, and get ready to cheer for your favorite country.
