Bob Costas has won a total 28 Emmy awards, which is more than any sports broadcaster. His versatility has been recognized with various awards and nominations in the categories of play-by-play, hosting, writing, news, journalism and entertainment. He is the only person ever to have won Emmy’s in sports, news and entertainment. His news Emmy was awarded for his interview in 2011 with Jerry Sandusky, the central figure in the Penn State scandal. He won his entertainment Emmy in 1993 for his late night program “Later with Bob Costas.”

Costas has won the “National Sportscaster of the Year” a record eight times. In 2012, he was elected to the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame. Also in 2012, Costas was awarded the Walter Cronkite Award for distinction in journalism. In 2018, Costas was inducted into the broadcasters wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame. He joins broadcasting luminaries such as Red Barber, Jack Buck, Vin Scully, Mel Allen, Ernie Harwell and Dick Enberg.

From the “Baseball Game of the Week” in the 1980s to hosting the Olympics to "Later…with Bob Costas,” Costas has played a prominent role in the coverage of every major sport over the past three decades. His commentaries on various issues have earned Costas the reputation as one of his generation’s most distinctive voices. The 2016 Rio Olympics were his 12th for NBC. Additionally, Costas has hosted seven Super Bowls and has been a part of seven World Series and ten NBA Finals. Costas has been a part of other major events as well such as the Kentucky Derby, Belmont Stakes and Preakness along with the U.S. Open Golf Championship.

In addition to NBC, Costas has worked with HBO and the MLB Network. In 2000, his book “Fair Ball, a Fan’s Case for Baseball” spent several weeks on the New York Times best seller list. Following the 2016 NFL season, Costas announced that he would no longer host NBC’s Sunday Night Football coverage along with his quarter century run as host of NBC’s Olympic coverage. At the same time, Costas increased his role with the MLB Network, where he has been able to return to his first love - baseball - with interviews, commentaries and play-by-play.

Costas is a native of Queens, New York and grew up on Long Island. He attended college at Syracuse University. He began his broadcasting career at WSYR-TV and radio in 1973 before joining KMOX radio in St. Louis in 1974.
