Trio Will Have Worked Nearly 50 Olympic Games Combined

NBC Olympics Executive Vice President Peter Diamond to Finish Storied Career Working Record 19th Olympics in Tokyo

The Opening Ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics is Friday, July 23 on NBC

STAMFORD, Conn. - May 27, 2021 - Mary Carillo, Andrea Joyce and Jimmy Roberts will once again serve as NBC Olympics commentators this summer in Tokyo, it was announced today.

Counting this summer's Tokyo Games, the trio will have worked at nearly 50 Olympics. Carillo and Roberts will serve as correspondents in Tokyo, while Joyce serves as a reporter at the gymnastics competition and handles play-by-play for rhythmic gymnastics. Carillo will also call tennis and open water swimming.

"It's an honor to call Mary, Andrea and Jimmy our Olympic teammates. They bring vast experience, knowledge, and the all-important element of humanity to our storytelling," said Joe Gesue, Senior Vice President, NBC Olympics production. "And while Mary, Jimmy and Andrea continue to make major contributions on air as they have for decades, we also celebrate our legendary colleague Peter Diamond, who has guided so many of us with his unmatched Olympic knowledge and experience for so many years, and in Tokyo will work his record 19th Olympics across the production and executive teams of NBC and ABC."

Tokyo marks Mary Carillo's 15th Olympic assignment overall and 12th for NBC. Since the 2008 Beijing Olympics, she has introduced the people, culture, and history of the host country and city to the U.S. television audience. At the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics she profiled the legendary South Korean Jindo dogs. In 2016, she spent nearly three weeks traversing Brazil to film her travelogues. A two-time winner of the prestigious Peabody Award, Carillo served as a correspondent for the 2014 Sochi Olympics and was the host and interviewer for a primetime 20-year retrospective documentary on Olympic figure skaters Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding. She was late night host and correspondent at the 2012 London Olympics, 2010 Vancouver Olympics and 2008 Beijing Olympics. This weekend, Carillo begins her 19th tournament as an analyst on NBC Sports' coverage of Roland-Garros (Sun., May 30 at Noon ET on Peacock; Mon., May 31 at 11 a.m. ET on NBC).

This summer, Andrea Joyce will work her 11th Olympics with NBC Sports, and 15th overall. She will report from the gymnastics venue for the fifth consecutive Olympics, covering Simone Biles and the gold-medal winning "Final Five" squad in 2016, the Gabby Douglas-led "Fierce Five" team champions in 2012, and her NBC Olympics teammate Nastia Liukin's all-around gold medal in 2008. At the Winter Games, Joyce has reported from both the high-profile figure skating and short track venues since the 2006 Torino Olympics. Previously, she co-hosted weekend coverage for three Winter Games for CBS, twice also serving as co-host of Opening and Closing Ceremony coverage. Next month, Joyce will serve as a reporter at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Gymnastics.

A 13-time Emmy Award-winning broadcaster and writer, Jimmy Roberts will reprise his role reporting on the stories of the Games, his 18th Olympic assignment and 10th for NBC. He has reported on Bode Miller in Vancouver, changes to Wimbledon for the Olympics in London, the legacy of Russian hockey from Sochi, and the incredible story of Refugee athletes in Rio. Over a career that spans four decades in broadcasting and journalism, Roberts has covered major sports events including the Super Bowl, the World Series, the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the NBA Finals, Wimbledon, and all of golf's biggest events. As part of his duties for NBC Sports and Golf Channel, he works the U.S. Open next month at Torrey Pines.

A 16-time Emmy Award-winner, Peter Diamond is Executive Vice President, Programming, NBC Olympics, responsible for programming NBCUniversal's coverage of the Olympic Games. The Summer Games in Tokyo will mark his 19th Olympic assignment - more than any executive in television history. Diamond began his career at ABC Sports in July 1974 as the Olympic researcher for the network's coverage of the 1976 Olympic Winter Games in Innsbruck, Austria, and the Summer Games in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. For the past 30-plus years, Diamond has been a programming executive, making him the most senior sports programmer among the U.S. broadcast networks. In 2015, he was honored with USA Track & Field's Lifetime Achievement Award.
