Bob Costas

Bob Costas has turned the broadcasting world upside down with his impeccable style. He is known for his ability to memorize trivial facts and insert them with precision timing when broadcasting. Costas is also known for his ability to hold his own when situations occur on a live broadcast. The thing he is most known for, however, is his love of baseball. Not the present baseball, but the heroic baseball of the past. Costas hopes that perhaps one day his children can see the kind of baseball he grew up listening to on the radio, and watching on a black and white screen.


Address: Bob Costas, c/o NBC Sports, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10112.
