Acclaimed Sportscaster and TV Host
One of television's most accomplished broadcasters, Bob Costas, who joined HBO Sports in February 2001, is the host of "Costas Now," a hard-hitting, intelligent and topical sports series.
During his first four years at HBO, Costas hosted "On he Record With Bob Costas," which established itself as one of network television's most respected programs for its compelling mix of interviews, commentary and opinion.
In May of 2006, Costas was presented with the Sports Emmy for "Outstanding Studio Host," marking the fifth straight year that he had received that honor from the National Academy of Arts & Sciences. The award recognized his work on both HBO and NBC Sports.
In addition, "Costas Now" was awarded the Sports Emmy for "Outstanding Edited Sports Special" for the compelling journey of David Robinson, the son of sports pioneer Jackie Robinson, who has built a life and a business cooperative in Tanzania.
In September 2002, Costas and all-time NFL great Cris Carter joined Cris Collinsworth and Dan Marino as co-hosts of HBO's award-winning football program "INSIDE THE NFL," cable's longest-running series. With the addition of Costas and Carter, ratings for the series rose considerably in 2002 and the program received the Sports Emmy Award in April of 2003 for Outstanding Studio Show - Weekly. The program was again recognized as the Outstanding Studio Show - Weekly at the May 2005 Sports Emmy event and the 2006 Sports Emmys. The 31st season of "INSIDE THE NFL" premieres September 12 on HBO.
Costas, a 27-year veteran of NBC Sports, joined the network's sports division in 1980. Since then, he has hosted seven Olympics and been prominently involved in virtually every major sports event, including numerous World Series, Super Bowl and NBA Finals broadcasts. His most recent Olympics assignment was serving as prime time host for the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy. He is the host of NBC's Sunday evening NFL program, "Football Night in America."
From August 1988 through January 1994, he hosted his own late-night interview show, "Later with Bob Costas," on NBC; the program won the 1993 Emmy Award® for Outstanding Informational Series. He has also received 15 Sports Emmys® as a broadcaster and two Sports Emmys® for writing and another as host of the general interest program "Later with Bob Costas" on NBC. His book "Fair Ball: A Fan's Case for Baseball," published in the spring of 2000 spent several weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, garnering excellent reviews. He also was the narrator for the books and audio package "And the Crowd Goes Wild" and "The Fans Roared," both of which made The New York Times bestseller list. Costas has been honored as Sportscaster of the year by the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association a record eight times.
