NEW YORK (AP) — NBC is bringing back Katie Couric to co-host the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics next month.

Couric will be co-host with Mike Tirico, who is replacing Bob Costas as prime-time host of the games. The ceremony takes place in South Korea on Feb. 9.

She’s hosted three Olympic opening ceremonies with Costas, the most recent in 2004.
