Radio Canada announced Wednesday that the two seasoned broadcasters will be the announcers for the show, which will air from 6:30pm to 10pm and will feature competition highlights.
We have a great privilege to co-host this show, which will be in prime time, but there will be no direct competition, Jacinthe Taylone specifies. We want to get creative so we can first get to know the track athletes and restore performances. We will have the opportunity to be in Canada House, and it will be the base where families and athletes meet. We’ll just have to pick up the microphone to talk to the families, and then also liven up the events with them.
Other time slots on TV will be hosted by Genevieve Tardif, Jean-Patrick Balloux and Guillaume Dumas. The full schedule of Olympic coverage will be announced over the coming months.
After the Tokyo and Beijing Olympics, which were marked by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the hosts of the evening show in Paris were eager to return to the event live on site.
We can’t wait to find the atmosphere of the Olympic venue and the neighborhood of the athletes,” said Martin Labrosse. During the last two games, they were shown on screens thanks to technological means. She was beautiful on screen. But for us, doing the interviews and having the athlete around would make a world of difference. We breathe a sigh of relief because we’ve gone from games without spectators to six million spectators.
The Paris Olympics will be held from July 26 to August 11, 2024, and approximately 10,500 athletes will participate.
CBC/Radio-Canada will also be broadcaster of the Winter Games in Milan and Cortina in 2026, the Summer Games in Los Angeles in 2028, the Winter Games in 2030, for which a host has yet to be chosen, and the Brisbane Summer Games in 2032.
