Your NBC Olympic Hockey Announcers
February 2, 2010 23 Comments
Based on bios from a media guide at the NBC media site, here are your commentators for the 2010 Olympic Games for the networks of NBC:
AJ Mleczko (Women’s)
Joe Micheletti (also reporter)
Looks like Doc and Kenny will call most of the games, with Olczyk and McGuire working as analysts for the men’s games (or Doc-Edzo-McGuire and Albert-Micheletti) and Mleczko and Micheletti as the analysts for the women’s games.
I still think there must be a third play-by-play man in there somewhere. Also, we have all these studio analysts, but no hosts. No Bill Clement in the lineup there, so perhaps there’ll just be a rotating cast of sportsdesk hosts setting up JR, Milbury and Cammi.
It’s also important to note that guys like Costas and Al Michaels are not in this media guide, so there could be larger names hosting things. Hopefully a press release comes out soon.
UPDATE: Further research has discovered that Bill Patrick will host the hockey coverage for the entire Winter Games. Should be interesting to see how he works with hockey analysts who have something to say.
