Summary
The 2002 Winter Olympics were held in Salt Lake City, Utah from February 8 through February 24, 2002. The first modern Olympic Games were held in Athens, Greece in 1896. The Winter Olympics were first held in 1924. The United States has been the host country for eight Olympics (four Summer and four Winter). The Olympics are one of the most popular events on television worldwide, with over 1 billion viewers watching, at some point, during the two weeks that the Games are held. In addition to the hundreds of hours of broadcasts, the Olympics generate extensive press coverage, particularly in countries that send athletic delegations to compete. Due to the international interest in the Games, media outlets from foreign countries were included as well as U.S. newspapers, journals, and broadcast Web sites.
