Podcaster Alex Cooper is joining NBC's impressive team of talent covering the upcoming Summer Olympics in Paris, France. She will be hosting Watch with Alex Cooper, described by NBC Sports as a "series of live interactive watch parties streaming on Peacock," once the games get under way in late July.

"As a former athlete, the chance to cheer on the world's greatest athletes at the Olympics is beyond thrilling,” Cooper said in a press release. “I am so excited to be partnering with NBC and Peacock to present this interactive watch-party format for the first time from the Olympics, designed to bring audiences even closer to the excitement of in Paris. We are going to have so much fun.”

“I can’t wait to find out what it’s like to watch the Olympics with the incomparable Alex Cooper,” said Molly Solomon, Executive Producer and President, NBC Olympics Production. “She has attracted a fanatical audience by being unapologetically fun and original, and she has been a vocal supporter of women’s sports and female empowerment. Alex is the perfect host for this interactive Olympics viewing experience on Peacock. Watch with Alex Cooper is designed to put the viewer in the room with her and her friends as they watch the athletes of Team USA take on the world. It should be a blast!”

But Cooper's work does not end there.
