The NBC Sports Network, which is undergoing a name change from Versus, is creating a new show for veteran sports broadcaster Bob Costas, reports The New York Times. Costas will host the monthly interview show and will also host quarterly town hall meetings, the story reports.
The first town hall meeting will air on the Thursday night before the Super Bowl, which will be broadcast on NBC, the story says.
Said Costas: “The meetings will attempt to, in a lively way, address for the most part substantive issues; sometimes they’ll be a celebration of aspects of sports.”
The town hall meetings will be similar to shows he hosted while at HBO Sports, the story adds.
