Mike Tirico, Mary Carillo and Ryan Seacrest will host NBC’s coverage of the Closing Ceremony, with Heather Cox and Lewis Johnson joining them as reporters.
Bob Costas and Al Michaels will anchor NBC’s studio coverage beginning at 7 p.m. ET/PT with Rio Gold, a look back at the most memorable moments and performances of Rio 2016, including Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, and the U.S. women’s gymnastics team.
Simone Biles, who won four gold medals and one bronze in Rio, was selected by her teammates to serve as the flag bearer for the United States.
The Closing Ceremony will feature the pageantry and local flavor of host country Brazil, as well as the parade of flags and athletes from countries that participated in the Rio Games. The ceremony culminates with a party featuring samba schools from Rio’s world-famous Carnival and the extinguishment of the Olympic flame.
Tirico is completing his first-ever Olympics assignment, while 13-time Olympic commentator Carillo hosts her third Closing Ceremony (Salt Lake City, Beijing). Seacrest, NBC Olympics’ late night host in Rio, served as a host of the 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony, alongside Costas and Michaels.
