Nancy Kerrigan Rebounds As Analyst For Winter Olympics

DETROIT (AP) – NBC has hired former figure skating champion Nancy Kerrigan as an analyst for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, next month.

The network is also planning a 45-minute report on the attack on Kerrigan by associates of rival Tonya Harding 20 years ago Monday during the U.S. figure skating championships at Detroit’s Cobo Arena.

It will be one of the few times Kerrigan has spoken publicly about the incident.

NBC News correspondent Mary Carillo, who will anchor the report, calls the Tonya vs Nancy incident “the beginning of reality TV.”

No air date has been announced for that special yet.
