NBC Sports: Play-by-play commentator Terry Gannon, 1998 Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski, and three-time U.S. figure skating champion Johnny Weir will handle NBC’s primetime figure skating coverage during the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
Gannon, Lipinski, and Weir received critical acclaim for their commentary on NBCSN’s live figure skating coverage at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, which helped the network post the 10 best weekday daytime audiences in its history. Later that year, they were named NBC Sports Group’s lead figure skating announce team.
“I am so honored and excited to bring figure skating into American homes during the 2018 Olympics. It’s an extreme privilege to craft the stories of the incredible athletes while enlightening and entertaining our audiences while we all enjoy a sport that has meant so much to my life. I can’t wait to get to PyeongChang and marvel at the performances of the skaters who across all disciplines, are competing at heights I never thought I’d see in my lifetime. Get ready America, winter has come!” – Johnny Weir
