American athletes are gearing up to ski, skate and slide their way to golden glory at this year’s Winter Olympics.
As part of NBC-TV’s coverage, the morning show “Today” will broadcast daily from Sochi, Russia. And in the middle of it all, Franklin native Brian Alkire will help make sure each story of inspiration, quirky anecdote and personal triumph hits home.
Alkire will be part of the production team for “Today” throughout this year’s games. He’ll be a runner, meaning he’ll be a go-to assistant in the creation of individual show segments and anything else that needs done.
