Costas sports talker coming to NBC cabler

First episode arrives during Super Bowl week

Bob Costas is set to host a new talkshow beginning in February for the NBC Sports Network.

“Costas Tonight: Live From …” will air quarterly in primetime and feature prominent issues in the sports world in a town hall format. First episode is scheduled to run Feb. 2 from Indianapolis, a few days before the Super Bowl airs on NBC.

Costas has a long history at NBC and is set to be primetime host of the net’s London Olympic Games next year. He will also host the monthly interview series “Costas Tonight” beginning in the spring for NBC Sports Network, which will have been rebranded from Versus on Jan. 2.

“This is the type of show I have always enjoyed doing, with elements of journalism and commentary, but also with segments of pure sports appeal. We produced similar programming at HBO and it was very well received,” said Costas.

A studio host on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” coverage, Costas is also a regular contributor for the MLB Network.
