Let the Games Begin: WRAL-TV Rio Team Brings Olympic Coverage to Triangle

WRAL-TV’s Ed Wilson and WRAL-TV’s Renee Chou (right) catch a selfie with The Today Show’s Hoda Kotb in Rio.

They had a rough road to Rio, but the WRAL-TV team covering the 2016 Summer Olympic action in Brazil is having a mountain-top adventure that more than makes up for lost luggage and a multi-day journey.  WRAL-TV Anchor/Reporters Debra Morgan, Renee Chou and Jeff Gravley with WRAL-TV Photojournalists Brad Simmons, Ed Wilson and Keith Baker are bringing back live action and a bevy stories from Rio each day on WRAL-TV.  The team is also posting constantly on social media.

From a hike up to the Christ the Redeemer statue to sitting by Ryan Held’s family as he won gold in the Men’s 4×100 relay, the WRAL-TV Rio Team is covering every angle of the Olympics for WRAL viewers back home.

Here are some of the photos and comments they’ve shared since they arrived in Rio and got to work:
