ORLANDO, Fla. – GolfChannel.com now serves as the complete golf news and editorial site for NBCSports.com, as well as MSNBC.com. Effective Wednesday – and in time for Golf Channel and NBC’s coverage of the Presidents Cup – the recently redesigned GolfChannel.com replaces the golf section on NBCSports.com, as well as across NBC Sports’ mobile and tablet platforms.
'Combining all NBC Sports digital golf content under one umbrella is the next step and a very important step as we continue to build the Golf Channel brand,' said Golf Channel President Mike McCarley.
Earlier this year, all golf coverage on NBC’s television network was re-branded as “Golf Channel on NBC.'
NBCSports.com online users are now provided with two distinct ways to access GolfChannel.com content. Those who click on the golf tab in the main navigation will automatically launch GolfChannel.com. Meanwhile, users who roll over the NBCSports.com golf tab will open a two-column drop-down menu, with the left-hand navigation featuring links to specific sections of GolfChannel.com, and the right hand navigation displaying dynamic stories from the GolfChannel.com news feed. Additionally, GolfChannel.com will provide all golf content to NBCSports.com partner site MSNBC.com.
GolfChannel.com also serves as the golf brand for NBCSports’ mobile and tablet initiatives by providing the golf content to the NBC Sports Talk app and NBC Sports Mobile. The mobile and tablet content will feature scores from major events, the latest golf news, and tour previews and recaps. Top Golf Channel videos are planned for a future rollout.
As part of the transition, NBCSports.com’s popular ProGolfTalk blog, part of NBCSports.com’s NBC SportsTalk blog that includes ProFootballTalk.com, has been rebranded GolfTalkCentral and now lives on GolfChannel.com.
