Matt Lauer to Host Olympics Coverage for NBC Again Tonight, Costas Still Out

Bob Costas will be sidelined at least another night and Matt Lauer will once again host NBC’s coverage of the Olympics.

Costas called in to the “Today” show Wednesday morning to tell Lauer he would be “coming out of the bullpen again tonight.”

“Actually, I don’t feel that bad,” Costas said of his eye infection. “It’s an eye infection, and my eyes are so blurry and watery and become so light-sensitive that even in dim light they’re constantly tearing up. I can’t possibly be in the studio, so it’s not a case of just saying, ‘What the heck, I’ll go in not feeling well.”
