Award-winning journalist Katie Couric will be returning to NBC!

The Opening Ceremony will be a chance for South Korea to share its culture and customs and for the international community to celebrate this unparalleled display of athletic achievement and sportsmanship. There’s nothing quite like it,” Katie said in a statement. “I’m also looking forward to working with Mike, who brings a wealth of knowledge and passion to everything he does.”
