Journalists in the sports industry are apparently unhappy with Ryan Seacrest getting involved in covering the Olympics.
They think the sports news should be left to the sportscasters.
A journalist for a major sports network, who wants to remain anonymous, said:
"Everyone in the industry is talking about what a bad move it was to include Ryan Seacrest on the NBC coverage this year. Ryan is the face of mainstream celebrity media, and there's supposed to be something sacred and pure about the Olympics. Ryan's not up to speed on the athletes in the way that they should be covered."
Many people have taken to social media to complain about how they want solid sports coverage, from well known sportscasters and that's it.
And they feel Seacrest can't give them that.
The journalist continued, saying:
"Ryan has enough on his plate with the Kardashians. NBC really failed by sensationalizing the games in a mainstream way by plastering Ryan's face all over the Olympics. It's a slap in the face to sports and athletics and those who spend their life devoted to covering them."
So what do U think??
We think Ryan did a FAB job!
Haters gon' hate!
