NBC Staffers Scared They’re Going To Get Bombed At The Olympics In S. Korea
NBC staffers are scared to volunteer working at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Games due to tensions in the regions, sources tell Page Six.
Usually, staffers can’t wait to work the games, but this year — being that it’s in South Korea, just 40 miles south of the demilitarized zone — some are choosing to stay home.
“They usually all want to sign up for the Olympics, but they’re afraid to get nuked,” said a source.
Another source said, “If NBC News employees have concerns about attending, they are not required to go, as was the policy with [the Rio Summer Olympics in 2016] and Zika fears.”
