Let the Games begin!

For sports fans wondering how they'll navigate the smorgasbord of viewing options at the 2024 Paris Olympics, NBC's live whip-around show Gold Zone, which will be available for the first time this summer on Peacock, promises to be a great place to start. Hosted by Scott Hanson, Andrew Siciliano, Matt Iseman, and Akbar Gbajabiamila, the broadcast will "present viewers with the best and most compelling moments happening at any time."

"The Olympic Games are like no other sporting event with up to 40 competitions happening simultaneously. Given that scale, Gold Zone is designed to be the viewer’s best friend, streaming the most important moments in real time,” Molly Solomon, Executive Producer and President, NBC Olympics Production, said in a statement March 20. “Never miss a moment or a medal with Gold Zone, and who better to guide viewers through this entertaining presentation than Scott Hanson, who does this every NFL weekend, and Olympic veterans Andrew Siciliano, Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila.”

What is the Gold Zone?

Gold Zone is described by the network as a whip-around show that will "guide fans through the excitement, triumphs, and emotion of the Games, scanning all the events that day to provide viewers with the most exhilarating moments and key races, routines, and finishes as they unfold live."

It debuted in 2012 as part of NBC's coverage of the Summer Games in London, but will be airing on Peacock for the first time during the upcoming Paris Games.

NFL Redzone host Scott Hanson will kick the show off in the mornings, with Siciliano, a host and play-by-play broadcaster on NFL Network, taking over hosting duties later in the afternoon. Then, Iseman and Gbajabiamila, co-hosts of American Ninja Warrior on NBC, will close out the day. Iseman is working his third Olympics with NBC Sports and Gbajabiamila his second. Both partnered as hosts of Peacock's Tokyo Olympics morning show, Tokyo Live, in 2021.

An assortment of special guests are expected to join the four sportscasters throughout the day.

What time is the Gold Zone on?

The show will stream live on Peacock from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET each day from July 27-Aug. 10. It will also be available on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app via "TV Everywhere" for customers with pay-TV subscriptions.

Hanson, Siciliano, Iseman, and Gbajabiamila are in good company as hosts of NBC's Olympic coverage. They join Mike Tirico, Kelly Clarkson, Peyton Manning, Hoda Kotb, and Savannah Guthrie, who will be heading to Paris come July, to emcee the Opening Ceremony for NBC.

Not to forget Snoop Dogg, who will offer up unique athlete interviews and provide a glimpse of life at the Summer Games. He promises to spice things up, telling reporters in February, "It's going to be me in the field, at events, moving through the city, doing the things that Snoop Dogg does."

Last but not least, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon's very own Jimmy Fallon will head over to Paris to help NBC wrap up their coverage by hosting the Closing Ceremony with Mike Tirico. 

NBC and Peacock will present live coverage of the Opening Ceremony on Friday, July 26, beginning at noon ET. Telemundo will provide Spanish-language coverage beginning at 1 p.m. ET. Primetime coverage will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC and Peacock.
