Katie Couric to Co-Host Olympics 2018 Opening Ceremony!

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

The former Today show host will co-host the Opening Ceremony for the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea. Katie will be joined by NBC’s Mike Tirico in the booth at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium for the Opening Ceremony, set to air on Friday, February 9 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.

“During my years at NBC, I loved covering the Olympics and showcasing the hard work, dedication and perseverance of athletes from around the world. 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.”
