Snoop Dogg is set to bring his laidback hosting style to the Olympics after previously teaming up with Kevin Hart for NBC’s coverage of the Tokyo Games in 2020. Snoop’s engaging and humorous approach made him a fan favorite, leading to his upcoming correspondent role in Paris.

“The global megastar will be on site in Paris to provide regular reports for the Olympic Primetime Show beginning July 26, 2024, on NBC and Peacock,” NBC said in a press release. “He’ll explore the city’s iconic landmarks, attend Olympic competitions and events, and visit with the athletes, their friends and families.”

The famed rapper and media personality is no stranger to lending his talents to coverage of major sporting events. His ability to connect with viewers and provide entertaining insights helped secure the special correspondent position for the 2024 Olympics.


“I grew up watching the Olympics and am thrilled to see the incredible athletes bring their A-game to Paris. It’s a celebration of skill, dedication, and the pursuit of greatness.” Snoop Dogg said.

In preparation for Paris, Snoop has already begun collaborating with American Olympic hopefuls. He recently filmed segments with gymnast Sunisa Lee, basketball player A’ja Wilson, skateboarder Jagger Eaton, and beach volleyball partners Kelly Cheng and Sara Hughes.

The rap icon asked the athletes about their training regimen, mental preparation, and goals for the upcoming Games. His conversations provided a glimpse into the lives of Team USA members beyond just their sports.


Snoop brings a recognizable name and face to the broadcast that viewers enthusiastically respond to. The athlete collaborations also help humanize the Olympians and showcase their stories to a broad audience.

NBC is capitalizing on Snoop’s mass appeal to help promote the 2024 Olympics and connect with a diverse viewership. Fans can look forward to Snoop Dogg’s unique contributions as he helps NBC capture the excitement in Paris next summer.
