NBC Sports Group announces some Winter Olympics plans

The NBC Sports Group announced some 2014 Winter Olympic news at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Saturday in Los Angeles.

Al Michaels will host daytime coverage from Sochi, Russia on NBC Sports Network (weekdays) and NBC (weekends). It's his third consecutive Olympics for NBC Sports Group after serving as host of NBC's weekend and weekday daytime coverage from London (2012) and Vancouver (2010).

Apolo Anton Ohno, who won eight medals (two gold) over three Olympic Winter Games in short-track speedskating, will serve as an analyst for coverage of that sport.

During the Games, which start Feb. 6, NBC will have a documentary on former Olympic figure skaters Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding. It's 20 years since the infamous incident in which Kerrigan was hit in the knee by a Harding associate prior to the 1994 Winter Games in Lillehammer.

Mary Carillo will interview both skaters.

Three days ago, ESPN announced that it will have a "30 for 30" documentary on the incident. However, it hasn't line up an interview with Kerrigan yet.
