(NationalUSNews.com) — The Summer Olympics are slated to begin on July 26th and run until August 11th this year in Paris, France. For people around the globe watching the Olympics, cheering on their favorites and enjoying the commentary by experts and celebrities is an exciting tradition. Snoop Dogg, the American rap legend, actor, entrepreneur, and noted pal of craft and lifestyle icon Martha Stewart, will be part of NBC’s Olympic coverage as a Special Correspondent.
As the games go on, Snoop will be out enjoying the iconic landmarks of Paris, attending Olympic events and competitions, and meeting the athletes, as well as visiting with some of their families and friends. This is a natural fit for Snoop as a former Olympic commentator for Peacock during the COVID-delayed Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics. He and comedian Kevin Hart’s hilarious commentary during those games were extremely popular with audiences and drove tens of millions of views.
Snoop also professes himself to be a lifelong Olympic enthusiast. In a public statement, he recalled watching the Olympics during his formative years. He went on to say that the Olympics are a celebration of dedication, skill, and the pursuit of greatness. He has promised to bring his own Snoop flavor to the commentary and expressed the opinion that this will be the most “epic” Olympics ever. He added that he is looking forward to seeing the athletes bring their “A-game” to Paris this summer.
Executive producer and president of NBC Olympics Production, Molly Solomon, admits that Snoop’s performance during the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics was a driving force for NBC seeking him out for their coverage this summer. She gave special mention to his memorable coverage of the dressage competition during the Tokyo Olympics. She then added that while they don’t know what will happen during the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris this year, she is confident that Snoop and his unique perspective will be a valuable addition to their re-imagined Olympic primetime show.
