NBC is sticking with Mike Tirico as Winter Olympics host despite past allegations of sexual harassment

  • Tirico was accused of sexual harassment early in his career at ESPN, and “these charges were aggressively addressed 25 years ago with a lengthy suspension,” said ESPN spokesperson Josh Krulewitz. An NBC Sports spokesperson issued a statement to The Hollywood Reporter saying: ”When we hired Mike in 2016, we were aware of the incidents from more than 25 years ago, which had been addressed in 1991-92 by ESPN, his employer at the time, and for which he has apologized. Mike has repeatedly assured us that this behavior is long in his past, and we have no evidence of anything to the contrary in his tenure at NBC Sports."
