Rebecca Lowe will be kicking around at NBC Sports for at least another six years. The longtime soccer studio host posted on social media today that she has re-upped at the network through the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.
“Really delighted to let you guys know that I’ve signed an extension to my contract at NBC,” she wrote in Instagram (see it below). “6 more years leading right up to the 2028 LA Olympics (a home Olympics? Ummm excited anyone?!!). It’s been *quite* the ride since Paul & I landed on these shores back on July 1st 2013 and if you told me then that I’d be with NBC for the next 15 years I’m not sure I’d have believed you.”
