Marv Albert to call Olympic hoops for NBC for first time since 1996

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Marv Albert will call Olympic basketball this summer for the first time since 1996.

He is set to be joined in Rio de Janeiro by analyst Doug Collins and reporter Craig Sager for the U.S. team’s games, NBC announced Tuesday.

Albert was the voice of the “Dream Team” run to gold during the 1992 Olympics. He also worked boxing for NBC at the 1988, 1996 and 2000 Games. The lead NBA play-by-play announcer for TNT since 1999, Albert started calling boxing matches again for NBC last year.

Albert “ranks in the pantheon of all-time play-by-play voices,” said Jim Bell, NBC Olympics’ executive producer.

This will be the fifth straight Olympics for both Collins, the former NBA All-Star and coach who now works as a studio analyst for ESPN, and Sager. Sager, the popular TNT sideline reporter, has continued to work as he battles a recurrence of cancer.

Hall of Famer Ann Meyers will also be calling her fifth straight Olympics when she serves as the analyst for women’s basketball. She will be joined by two first-timers: play-by-play announcer Marc Zumoff, the voice of the Philadelphia 76ers, and reporter Ros Gold-Onwude, a former Stanford player who now works Golden State Warriors games.

Zumoff’s and Gold-Onwude’s regular jobs are both at Comcast SportsNet regional channels that are part of NBC Sports.
