Feb 5, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Joe Buck will host his own sports talk show for HBO Sports.
The series, which will premiere in May, likely will have a town hall format and will be presented on a quarterly basis.
Mr. Buck will continue his duties as Fox Sports’ lead play-by-play commentator for its National Football League and Major League Baseball packages.
“At HBO we strive to produce programs viewers cannot watch anywhere else on the dial,” Ross Greenburg, president of HBO Sports, said in a statement. “Whether it’s ‘Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel’ or ‘Hard Knocks’ or our ‘Sports of the 20th Century’ documentary franchise, we try to capture our audience’s attention with something unique and innovative. With someone as talented and engaging as Joe Buck, this new show should become another signature program for HBO Sports.”
Bob Costas recently left HBO to join the MLB Network.
