It’s a celebration of skill, dedication, and the pursuit of greatness,” Snoop said. “We’re going to have some amazing competitions and, of course, I will be bringing that Snoop style to the mix. It’s going to be the most epic Olympics ever, so stay tuned, and keep it locked. Let’s elevate, celebrate, and make these games unforgettable, smoke the competition, and may the best shine like gold. Peace and Olympic LOVE, ya dig?”

“Snoop is already an Olympic gold medal commentator, generating tens of millions of views for his highlights commentary on Peacock of the dressage competition during the Tokyo Olympics,” said Molly Solomon, executive producer and president of NBC Olympics Production. “That performance alone has earned Snoop a job as our Special Correspondent in Paris. We don’t know what the heck is going to happen every day, but we know he will add his unique perspective to our re-imagined Olympic primetime show.”

This will mark the third time Paris has hosted the Olympics (previously in 1900 and 1924). Organizers are planning ways to showcase Paris during the Games, with competitions scheduled to be held by iconic Parisian landmarks (for example, beach volleyball at the Eiffel Tower, equestrian at the Palace of Versailles, and urban sports at Place de la Concorde).

NBC and Peacock will be NBCUniversal’s primary platforms for its coverage of the Olympic Games Paris 2024, which are scheduled for July 26-Aug. 11. NBCU owns the U.S. media rights to the Olympic Games through 2032.
