On Monday, NBC announced their full lineup of broadcasters for the 2022 Winter Olympics (the first competition takes place on Wednesday, believe it or not), many of which had already been announced.

Mike Tirico will have the premier hosting role for NBC, helming the network’s primetime coverage and, for the first week of the Games, the late night coverage. Maria Taylor will take over as the late night coverage host for the second week, and Rebecca Lowe hosts daytime coverage. Craig Melvin will host Today from Beijing, and will host on-site when Tirico is in Los Angeles at the Super Bowl.

On USA, hosts include Jac Collinsworth, Lindsay Czarniak, Ahmed Fareed, and Jimmy Roberts, while CNBC hosts include Carolyn Manno and Kathryn Tappen (in the second week).

Hosts for Peacock programming were announced last week, which include Matt Iseman, Jonny Moseley, and Adnan Virk.

Steve Kornacki and Lindsey Vonn will work as correspondents for NBC’s coverage, as will Sam Brock and Anne Thompson.

As for event broadcasters, here’s the full list from NBC’s release. Notably, all of these broadcasters will be remotely calling the events from NBC’s studios in Connecticut, rather than being on-site in Beijing.

Of that list, the hockey coverage is most notable to me. That’s a whole lot of former NHL on NBC talent coming back for the Olympics.

Anyway, whether or not you’re excited or even care about the Olympics, NBC is ready to begin the Games with the wall to wall coverage we’ve grown to expect from them.
