'Auctions America is a great addition to our programming,' says Jeff Macaluso, Senior Director of Programming, NBC Sports Network. 'We look forward to presenting 15 hours of exclusive live event coverage of Auctions America on NBC Sports Network and NBC Sports Live Extra for the first time ever in the coming months.'
