Bob Costas On The Record: Wishes NBC Departure More Gracious

Long one of the most famous – and best – sports journalists in the world, Bob Costas never shied from asking tough questions and is pondering one for NBC, where he worked 40 years before the end came.

“There was no announcement. I didn’t need a parade, but it would’ve been nice if I could’ve ended on a grace note … I would’ve been fine if they just had me do some sort of programming and then at the end, for two minutes, say goodbye. The only thing I wish about leaving NBC is that it ended on a more gracious note and maybe we’ll circle back and make that right at some point,” Costas said on In Depth with Graham Bensinger. “Make it completely right.”

He was the face of coverage for many Olympic Games Costas and had gone to CNN for a commentating job and has an HBO show called Back On the Record with Bob Costas.

Before Super Bowl 52 he talked about concussions saying this game destroys people’s brains.” That got him pulled from the telecast but he didn’t care. That’s on the record.
