LA2024 Tweaks Plans To Bid For Olympics

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In another change to the original plan, the press center for Los Angeles’ bid to host the 2024 Olympics would be relocated to the University of Southern California campus near the proposed media village. The Secret Service would take the lead role in Games security.

LA2024 announced Friday that the Main Press Center once planned for NBC Universal’s studio lot would instead be at USC’s downtown Los Angeles campus and the lot in Universal City would host the International Broadcast Center as originally proposed.

LA2024 submitted its second bid file covering governance, legal and venue funding to the International Olympic Committee on Friday. The IOC will select the 2024 host city in September 2017.
