Olympic Correspondent

David Feherty makes his Winter Olympics debut and second appearance with NBC Olympics, serving as a correspondent. Feherty made his Olympic debut at the 2016 Rio Games as a correspondent, and also served as a tower analyst and on-course reporter during the men’s golf competition. Feherty shared his observations of Rio, its people and their culture in studio as a correspondent, and worked Golf Channel’s coverage of Olympic golf as it returned to the Olympics for the first time since 1904.

Feherty joined NBC Sports Group and NBCUniversal exclusively in 2015, signing an extension on his Emmy-nominated Golf Channel series Feherty, and joining NBC Sports’ broadcast team covering the PGA TOUR as an on-course reporter and tower analyst. Feherty received Emmy nominations in 2014 and 2017 for “Outstanding Sports Personality – Studio Host” for his self-titled series which originally debuted in June 2011, and in 2017 celebrated the show’s 100 episode milestone.
