HistoryEdit

In 2001, Costas was hired by HBO to host a 12-week talk and interview series called On the Record with Bob Costas. In 2005, the program was revamped to become Costas Now, with more of a focus on sports and a year-round schedule in a 9 p.m. ET time slot. Costas Now was similar to another HBO sports show hosted by Bryant Gumbel called Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.

In February 2009, Costas left HBO to sign with MLB Network, effectively ending Costas Now. HBO replaced it with a similar, short-lived program called Joe Buck Live, hosted by Fox Sports broadcaster Joe Buck.
