As the 2016 Olympics kick off in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, resident sports guy Mark Hyman joins Tom in the studio to give us a preview. Several athletes with ties to the greater Baltimore region are competing in this year’s games. Are swimmers Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky ready for a repeat? Are track and field stars Christina Epps and Matt Centrowitz ready for a breakout? They’ll also discuss the concerns over water safety and athlete housing in Rio that have some saying the city isn’t ready for big games.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
