Leslie Jones Joins NBC as Official Olympics Commentator

You heard right… the Olympics super geek makes her grand return to the Olympics this month as an official commentator and interviewer.

She scored her gig after her hilarious live tweeting about the Olympics earned her an invite to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.  She interviewed athletes and brought her impressive sports knowledge to the round table. Jones immediately became a highlight and received positive reviews and reactions from sports fans and non-fans alike.

Naturally, NBC invited her back for round two and the SNL star is READY.



Jim Bell, President, NBC Olympics Production and Programming is really looking forward to how Jones handles the winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

“Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else.  Her passion for Team USA is contagious, and her adventures in South Korea should be fascinating.”

The games begin on February 6th!
