They join previously announced correspondents chef David Chang and 1984 Olympic champion figure skater Scott Hamilton.

Correspondents will explore the culture, people and traditions in South Korea, while also telling athlete and competition stories.

Carillo, a former WTA player and longtime tennis analyst, will cover her 14th Olympics and 11th with NBC Sports. She will continue to provide travelogues about the Olympic host city and country, as she has done since the 2008 Beijing Games. Carillo traversed South Korea, partly with Chang.

Boldon, a four-time Olympic medalist sprinter from Trinidad and Tobago, will cover his sixth Olympics and second Winter Games.

Feherty, a retired professional golfer from Northern Ireland and longtime golf analyst, will cover his second Olympics after debuting in Rio.

Cooper Ramo, the youngest senior editor and foreign editor in the history of Time Magazine, also covers his second Olympics for NBC. In 2008, he discussed culture and geo-political issues as NBC’s China analyst at the Beijing Games.

NBC’s PyeongChang Olympic coverage starts Feb. 8, one night before the Opening Ceremony.

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — NBC Sports golf analyst David Feherty will offer commentary during the network’s prime-time coverage at this summer’s Rio Olympics and take part in the broadcast of the Opening Ceremony.

NBC announced Monday that the irreverent Feherty would add those broader assignments to his work as an on-course reporter and tower analyst as golf returns to the Olympics for the first time since 1904.

The men’s golf competition runs Aug. 11-14 and airs on Golf Channel.

Feherty joined NBC in September after nearly two decades at CBS.

Longtime golf broadcast analyst David Feherty teamed exclusively with NBC Sports and will cover the sport’s return to the Olympics at Rio 2016.

“I’m really looking forward to this next step in my career‎, but I’ll miss a lot of people who have had my back for nearly 20 years. And to be honest, I’m on the verge of soiling myself,” Feherty, 57, said in a press release. “However, I am looking forward to new challenges and opportunities at NBC and Golf Channel. I haven’t yet heard the over-under on me getting fired, but hey, I beat the odds the last time.”

Golf returns to the Olympics for the first time since 1904 next year.

As a player, the Northern Ireland native won 10 tournaments in the 1980s and early 1990s and represented Europe in the 1991 Ryder Cup.
