Maria Sharapova to Work as TV Reporter at Sochi Olympics

Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova will work for the US television network NBC as a correspondent for its coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

      It interesting that the resort town of Sochi is the place which Sharapova calls her hometown, as she lived there as a child.

      “Growing up in Sochi until she was six years old and with family and friends still living in the area, Maria will offer a unique and personal perspective on a place she knows so well,” Jim Bell, the executive director of NBC Olympics, said in his recent interview.

      In her turn, Maria Sharapova expressed her gratitude to NBS.  “Being a part of the NBC family is exciting as I’ll be able to share with the world the unique culture and history of Sochi,” she said.

      It is still not clear what events Sharapova will be covering for NBC, which holds the US media rights for the Sochi Olympics, that are set to open February 7 and wrap up on February 23.
