Decorated U.S. Olympic skier Bode Miller will make his debut as an analyst during NBC Sports’ coverage of the Birds of Prey World Cup alpine skiing event in Beaver Creek, Colorado on December 4. Miller earned six Olympic medals during his career, the most ever by a U.S. skier, including a gold in super combined at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
“I am excited about the opportunity to call the Birds of Prey races with Dan and the team at NBC Sports,” said Miller. “I love to watch and analyze ski racing, so that part should be very natural for me. I love trying new things and calling a race live will be a new experience.”
The Birds of Prey is the only men’s World Cup stop in the United States. NBC Sports alpine skiing host Dan Hicks, Todd Brooker and course reporter Steve Porino will join Miller covering the event.
“We’re looking forward to Bode bringing his go-for-broke style from the slopes to the booth,” said NBC Sports coordinating producer John McGuinness. “In addition to being one of the world’s most exciting and colorful skiers, Bode may be the most knowledgeable skier in the world. His outspoken style combined with his ability to articulate the technical aspects of the sport is a powerful combination that will benefit viewers.”
