Olympic gold medallist Matthew Mitcham and Seven personality Teigan Nash have joined Seven’s Rio 2016 broadcast team to present Buzz From Brazil, a daily program containing a snapshot of what’s happening across social media in and around the Games.
Buzz From Brazil will screen across the channels of Seven, including premiere airings during Seven’s primetime show, In Rio Today, which will air nightly at 7pm, hosted by Hamish McLachlan. Buzz will also be showcased across the 7Olympics social platforms multiple times each day of the Olympic Games, highlighting the best viral video, tweets, posts and social content from athletes and fans both in Rio and back home.
Nash is a co-host of Saturday Disney on 7TWO and with a keen interest in sport, she brings a fresh face to Seven’s social coverage.
The 7Olympics social media channels and website www.seven.com.au/Olympics have already launched, using the Twitter and Instagram handle @7Olympics, and will continue to evolve on the countdown to Rio 2016, while the Olympics on 7 app launches August 1.
