Congratulations, Johnny and Tara!

Figure Skating - Winter Olympics Day 4

Quick, look fabulous figure skating fans, Johnny and Tara are in the house! According to this article, Tara and Johnny will now be the sports casters for figure skating starting this season, replacing Scott Hamilton and Sandra Bezic. They will also be the prime time sports casters for Pyeongchang 2018. Tracy Wilson, however, will continue her coverage of ice dance events.

I don’t usually watch NBC for my figure skating (I live up north where CBC reigns with its Canadian propaganda) but I welcome this change. I was never a fan of Scott Hamilton, skating-wise or with his commentary and a hint of fun and snark might liven the figure skating universe a little bit.

What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

    I wholeheartedly agree with this decision. I love the chemistry between Johnny and Tara, as well as their way of telling you about the technical side or just the way a skater feels on the ice with simple words. Scott and Sandra won’t be missed, that’s for sure !
