    This thing has become one of my favorites of the winter games.

    Does anyone know if it will exist this time around and who will be playing as a regular at the desk?

    Thanks.

    I read on another thread that NBC will have a daily "Olympic Ice" show at 5:30PM but, so far, it seems that it will be seen only on nbcolympics.com, rather than on traditional television. I loved the in-arena 'Olympic Ice' duringthe Torino 2006 Games (hosted by Mary Carillo, with Sale/Peletier, 'Push Dick's Button' etc.). The 2010 Vancouver studio show was a bore, in comparison. Hopefully, this year's 'Olympic Ice'will be similar to the 2006 edition, with the hosts inside the Iceberg Arena and not at a far-away boring studio.

    The hosts for the online Olympic Ice will be Russ Thaler and Sarah Hughes. They'll be doing the show from the NBC Sports studio in Connecticut.

    Thank you both for your replies.

    Frau Muller, it sure doesn't sound like it, if SpeedySucks is right. Because it won't even be in the same country.

    Yup. There will be plenty of LIVE skating on NBCSN to make up for this disappointment.
