Bobsled Analyst

John Morgan returns as NBC Olympics’ bobsled analyst for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang for his 10th consecutive Winter Olympics broadcasting assignment, and fifth with NBC Olympics.

Morgan made his Olympic broadcasting debut at the 1984 Sarajevo Games as the bobsled and skeleton analyst and reprised that role at all eight Olympic Winter Games that followed, including his most recent Olympics in Sochi in 2014.

A native of Saranac Lake, N.Y., and born into a family of bobsledders including his father and brother, Morgan competed with the U.S. National Bobsled Team from 1978-1979. In 1982 he founded JFM Sports, which produces bobsled, skeleton, luge and rugby programming, and, beginning in the mid-1990s, the Federation of International Bobsled and Tobogganing (FIBT) World Cup Tour global feed.
