LONDON (AP) -- Olympic organizers have completed construction of the international broadcast center for the 2012 London Games.

The Olympic Delivery Authority says it's the fifth venue completed in the Olympic Park in east London. The announcement Wednesday comes just over a year before the start of the games on July 27, 2012.

The 900-foot building will form part of the main media complex, which also includes the main press center. The complex will serve as the hub for more than 20,000 broadcasters, photographers and print journalists.

ODA Chairman John Armitt says "the Olympic Park project is on schedule and within budget."
