Al Michaels & Dan Patrick to Host Daytime Show

Mary Carillo Again Anchors Late Night Show

Ryan Seacrest, John McEnroe, Bela Karolyi and Carillo to Serve As Olympic Contributors

NEW YORK - April 26, 2012 - Bob Costas, a 22-time Emmy Award-winning broadcaster, returns as the primetime host for NBC's coverage of the 2012 London Olympic Games, which begin Friday, July 27. For Costas, this marks his 10th Olympic broadcast assignment and his ninth as the primetime host (Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996, Sidney 2000, Salt Lake City, 2002, Athens 2004, Torino 2006, Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010).

Al Michaels, who hosted daytime coverage at the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, and Dan Patrick, making his Olympic hosting debut, will host NBC's live weekday and weekend daytime coverage, and Mary Carillo will once again host the NBC late night show.

Additionally, top TV broadcaster Ryan Seacrest, tennis legend John McEnroe, famed gymnastics coach Bela Karolyi, and Carillo, broadcasting her 11th Olympic Games, will serve as Olympic correspondents during primetime coverage on NBC.

NBC OLYMPIC HOSTS:

· The 2012 London Games will be Bob Costas' 10th for NBC and his ninth as primetime host. After serving as late night host in 1988 from Seoul, South Korea, Costas earned acclaim for his work as primetime host from Barcelona, Atlanta, Sydney, Salt Lake City, Athens, Torino, Beijing and Vancouver. Costas, who has the longest tenure of the network's sports commentators, joined NBC in 1980.

· Al Michaels, one of the most renowned commentators of all-time and whose legendary "Do you believe in miracles? Yes!" call at the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympic Games 32 years ago stands as one of the most famous calls in sports history, will work his second straight Olympics for NBC, serving as host of NBC's live weekend and weekday daytime coverage from London. Michaels was the daytime host at the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games in 2010, his first Olympic broadcast assignment in 22 years, when he covered hockey and hosted the Closing Ceremony at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics for ABC.

· Dan Patrick will make his Olympic hosting debut joining Michaels as host of NBC's live weekday and weekend daytime coverage from London. Patrick, host of Football Night in America and the Dan Patrick Show, served as an Olympic correspondent for NBC in Vancouver.

· Mary Carillo will host NBC's late-night coverage for the third time, reprising her role from Beijing and Vancouver. Carillo will also serve as an Olympic correspondent and provide a look into life in the United Kingdom through a collection of features done in her own inimitable style, similar to her acclaimed work during the Beijing and Vancouver Games. London is Carillo's 11th Olympic Games and eighth for NBC.

OLYMPIC CORRESPONDENTS:

· As previously announced on NBC News' TODAY, top TV broadcaster Ryan Seacrest will make his Olympic broadcasting debut, serving as a contributor for NBC's primetime coverage from London.

· Legendary tennis star and broadcaster John McEnroe will make his Olympic broadcasting debut in London. McEnroe, who has served as a tennis analyst for NBC since 1992, and dominated the tennis world in the 1980's, winning three Wimbledon and four U.S. Open titles, will serve as an Olympic correspondent on NBC's primetime coverage.

· Bela Karolyi, arguably the most successful coach in gymnastics history, is one of his sports' most-recognized personalities. He has coached and trained world-renowned gymnasts for the Olympic Games from 1976-2004, and returns to NBC as an Olympic correspondent, the same roll he filled during the Beijing Olympics.
