Here's the scoop on skate worlds broadcasts

March 18, 2010 |  6:58 am
A reader e-mailed earlier this week asking me to publish the TV schedule for the World Figure Skating Championships next week in Turin, Italy.

Here it is, with all times EDT.  Subtract one hour for Chicago and three for Los Angeles.

All coverage is on Universal Sports. Full live coverage is Web-only (universalsports.com), but there will be two hours of live coverage of each event (except compulsory dance) on Universal Sports TV.

Information about recap, photos and video will be posted after each day's action at this site.

As is typical at the worlds following an Olympics, some medalists will not compete, including men's champion Evan Lysacek of the United States and pairs champions Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo.  Others missing: women's bronze medalist Joannie Rochette of Canada and dance bronze medalists Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin (thereby sparing everyone a reprise of their ridiculous attempt at presenting Australian aboriginal music in the original dance).
