NBC’s F1/IndyCar voice, Leigh Diffey, to make Olympic broadcast debut at Sochi Leigh Diffey – the voice of Formula One and the IndyCar Series for the NBC Sports Group – will be part of NBC’s talent team for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, which begin Thurs., Feb. 6, 2014 with prime-time coverage.
Diffey will be making his Olympic broadcasting debut and fittingly, there will be plenty of speed to go with it as he’ll be serving as play-by-play announcer for the bobsled, luge and skeleton competitions.
All of those will take place at the Sanki Sliding Center, which lies 60 miles northeast of Sochi, Russia in the Games’ “Mountain Cluster” of venues.
Coverage of the events from Sanki will be augmented by reporter Lewis Johnson, in what will be his eighth Olympics for NBC, and analysts John Morgan and Duncan Kennedy.
Morgan is a former member of the U.S. bobsled team, while Kennedy competed for the U.S. in luge during three Olympics.
