Who Is Announcing the Preakness Stakes 2024? This Year's Broadcast Crew and Channel

The Preakness Stakes is here once again, and horse racing fans are gearing up for this year's event. The 149th Preakness is set to feature some of the world's best horses in the second leg of the Triple Crown.

Before the event begins, many are curious about the broadcast for this year's race. With that in mind, here's everything you need to know about TV coverage of the 2024 Preakness.

Who is Announcing the Preakness 2024?

The Preakness will air on NBC once again in 2024. Mike Tirico returns as studio host and Larry Collmus will call the race. They'll be joined by several of their NBC peers to cover the action on Friday and Saturday.

Tirico is a famed sportscaster who got his first big break as a SportsCenter anchor in the early 1990s. He landed at NBC in 2016, where he's gone on to host a number of big events, including the Kentucky Derby, World Cup, Olympics, and Sunday Night Football.

Collmus, meanwhile, succeeded Tom Durkin as NBC's voice of the network's major horse racing coverage in 2010. Collmus has called a few Triple Crown wins during his time with NBC, and Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan will look to join that list once again with a win at Pilmico.
