Bob Costas Stepping Down As NBC Olympics Host

February 9, 2017
Bob Costas has been the lead face for NBC Sports for decades, but he announced he's stepping down from Olympic coverage and Football Night In America. He released the news on Thursday's Today show.

"I am going to be like the rest of the country, watching Mike Tirico, who will be an able successor in Korea for the Winter Olympics,” Costas said.

Here's a fun fact: his replacement, Tirico, attended Syracuse on a Bob Costas scholarship!
