Mike Tirico to join NBC Sports in time for Rio Olympics
Move made official on Monday afternoon after spending 25 years at ESPN and ABC
The deal which starts on July 1 will have Mike Tirico announcing the Thursday night NFL football package–which will be both seen on NBC and streamlined on via Twitter, along with covering The Open golf tournament each summer.
He will also be one of the studio hosts for the Rio Olympics this coming August. And who knows, we might be seeing him cover hockey someday down the road? Bottom line, after 10 years doing Monday Night Football and announcing the NBA and the college football championship game for ESPN Radio, things are going to change.
