Adam Rippon Is Not Going To Be An Olympic Commentator on NBC Anymore


Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon pulled out of a deal that would have had him commentating on the Winter Olympics for NBC for the duration of the games.

“After agreeing to an offer to work for NBC, Adam Rippon @Adaripp decided overnight that he would rather remain as an Olympian, source telling me,” USA Today’s Christine Brennan tweeted. “Didn’t want to relinquish his official Olympic standing, give up credential, move out of Team USA housing and miss closing ceremony.”

Last week, it was reported that Adam had been hired by NBC as a commentator for the final week of the Olympics. Adam has definitely captured America’s heart — in fact he calls himself “America’s Sweetheart.”
