Bob Costas leaves HBO for MLB Network

Posted on

Bob Costas has parted ways with HBO and will make his new cable home at the fledgling MLB Network, Variety reports. He’ll host programs like his new interview series, MLB Network Studio 42 With Bob Costas, which bows Feb. 5 with guest Joe Torre, manager of the L.A. Dodgers. He’ll also offer play-by-play on some of the channel’s live games. The deal does not affect Costas’ contract with NBC, where he’ll continue to host NFL and Olympic coverage, or, presumably, his ability to guest star on series like Monk.
