Leigh Diffey is NBC Sports Group’s lead F1 announcer and will begin his fifth year with the network in 2017, whose motorsports coverage kicks off January 3 with the Dakar rally on NBCSN, which Diffey also hosts.
Diffey, or “Diff” for a shorter nickname, came from humble roots and beginnings in Australia and has risen throughout his career to where he is now through a mix of hard work, dedication and relentless effort – but also hasn’t forgot to have fun in the process.
He catches up with Marshall Pruett in a pair of podcasts, one primarily focusing on his career development and the other a lighter note with some fun stories along the way.
Both are linked below. Diffey isn’t the only member of the F1 on NBC broadcast team making the podcast rounds; Will Buxton also spoke to Pruett and that podcast will be released at a later date, while David Hobbs is featured in one of the “Dinner with Racers” episodes hosted by sports car veterans Ryan Eversley and Sean Heckman.
