Mike Tirico Will Replace Bob Costas As NBC Olympic Host

Mike Tirico left ESPN for NBC last spring. NBC announced that he will replace Bob Costas as the primetime host for the network’s Olympics coverage beginning with the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Tirico had been in a bit of limbo since joining NBC, before the NFL permitted him to do a few games┬ábefore the season’s end. His eventual replacement of Costas as Olympics host was expected.

Costas was NBC’s Olympics host for 24 years. He leaves behind a legacy of rigorous malady resistance, inveterate fashion game, and unflappable hand-eye coordination┬áTirico will have to maintain.
