The pair will be positioned on a bridge along the River Seine, offering commentary as the opening procession passes below.Though, unlike Manning and Clarkson, they're not rookies to Olympic coverage. Guthrie cohosted NBC's opening ceremony at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 and the Beijing Olympics in 2020. Kotb cohosted the opening ceremony in 2016 when the Games were held in Rio de Janeiro.             When does the opening ceremony take place? The opening ceremony for the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics will take place on Friday, July 26 at noon ET. The event will air on NBC and stream on Peacock. A Spanish-language telecast will start at 1 p.m. ET on Telemundo.Primetime coverage on NBC and Peacock will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET. Where will the opening ceremony take place? Paris is bringing unique flair to the opening ceremony. Typically, athletes enter a stadium with their national teammates, carrying a flag and walking the perimeter of the playing surface. For the first time ever, the opening ceremony will not take place in a stadium but will be held in the streets of Paris.The procession will consist of a flotilla of more than 90 boats traveling four miles down the River Seine. Thousands of athletes will pass assembled crowds along the riverbank, with the parade ending at the Eiffel Tower. It's part of an effort in Paris to bring the city's iconic landmarks into the events. Beach volleyball games will be held under the Eiffel Tower, equestrian events will have the Palace of Versailles as a backdrop, fencing and taekwondo will be seen at the Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées, and urban sports will occur at Place de la Concorde, among other notable locations.

              Kevin Costner Hosting 805Live! Events

One805 Announces Nashville-based Singer-Songwriter (and former Santa Barbaran), Jordan Asher Huffman, as its 2024 Mental Wellness Ambassador
Nashville-based singer-songwriter and recording artist Jordan Asher Huffman is One805’s 2024 Mental Wellness Ambassador. His single Out Loud will serve as this year's anthem for all One805LIVE! events.

Huffman will debut his song locally on May 19th at the One805LIVE! event at Sunstone Winery, along with an impressive line-up of rock legends. See here for more details and tickets: https://one805.org/events/one805live-sunstone-2024/As Mental Wellness Ambassador, Huffman will work to challenge the stigmas around mental health and encourage mental wellness in Santa Barbara County and beyond.  He will also speak to the issues regarding mental health and our First Responder community

Due to the growing need for resources and services to support First Responder’s mental health, Huffman and One805 are taking a proactive approach to help protect the mental health of First Responders working on the front lines.Huffman created his song Out Loud with one objective in mind, to create a song that gives us permission to live rather than just survive. In his personal life Jordan comes from a background of turbulence and pain that has shaped who he is as a person, and everything he stands for. Jordan lost his father twice in his lifetime, first at the age of 14 from mental illness and drug abuse, and then again years later to suicide.

When he was young his grandfather also ended his own life, Jordan also lost several close friends to suicide in their 20's. Jordan's motivation behind the song was to call out the stigma of mental health in our society, and to illuminate our awareness of how we feel. He also wants to empower us to quiet the intrusive thoughts we all survive. No matter where any of us are from or what we believe in, everybody hurts. The song's purpose is to shine a light on the notion that it is not criminal to hurt, or to ask for help when you need it. The song was produced and written with Alan Parsons, Noah Bruskin, Joie Scott and Michael Peterson.Many mental health conditions, including depression, substance use disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and even suicidal ideation, are more common among First Responders.Constant exposure to traumatic events and life-threatening situations and the stress of working long hours away from family members, under high-stakes conditions, can easily build up and take an enormous toll on the mental health of First Responders. Huffman is best known for his work with the Grammy award-winning producer, engineer and performance artist Alan Parsons. In 2019, Huffman appeared as a featured vocalist on tour with Parsons, both internationally and domestically, performing one of the charting hits from Parsons' new album, The Secret, which Huffman is also a co-writer and featured vocalist on. "Alan (Parsons) has been a huge inspiration and mentor to me and I've grown so much as an artist with his guidance," said Huffman.  "He also introduced me to One805 and the critical mental health needs with respect to SB County First Responders and it felt like such a natural fit for me to be involved because of my own personal background with these issues."“I am honored, and I am privileged to be this year’s campaign Ambassador to help those who help us,” says Huffman. “ I wrote "Out Loud" with the intention to lend a voice and a light to those of us who might be in the dark with no view to a way out.” Website and Music link sectionLearn more about Huffman here: https://www.jordanashermusic.com Listen to "Out Loud" here: Out Loud
