A couple years ago we backed Claude Ruibal, founder and CEO of World Championship Sports Network, which was building an online “TV” network for the Olympic Sports.
About 18 months later, a private equity group run by former cable exec Leo Hindery bought us out.
Today, WCSN announced a huge deal with NBC, where the two are creating a cross platform channel for the Olympic Sports, called “Universal Sports.”
This is a huge accomplishment for Claude and his team, and part of a vision I know he has had for years.
