With just under a year to go until the Opening Ceremony, NBC OLYMPICS has tapped RYAN SEACREST as host for NBC’s late night coverage of the 2016 RIO Olympic Games. SEACREST served as a correspondent for NBC’s coverage of the 2012 LONDON Games.
“The late night atmosphere will be electric,” said NBC OLYMPICS Executive Producer JIM BELL. “And we’re thrilled to have RYAN SEACREST in the middle of it all capturing RIO’s unique flavor, talking to Olympic athletes, and telling the stories of the day.”
“Joining the NBC OLYMPICS team at the 2012 LONDON Games was an exhilarating experience,” said SEACREST. “I appreciate JIM BELL’s confidence, along with everyone at NBC SPORTS. I can’t wait to reunite with the team of broadcasters and producers for the 2016 RIO Olympics, and I look forward to hosting the live late night show.”
