Bob Costas leaves HBO Sports for MLB Network

It has been rumored for some time that baseball aficionado and broadcasting great Bob Costas would join the MLB Network. Today, it is true. From HBO:
“Bob Costas was a terrific addition when he joined HBO Sports eight years ago, providing us with a distinct and unique presence. Television is about change and we respect Bob’s decision to move to the MLB Network. We are very proud of the work Bob did at HBO, and we wish him well in his new endeavor."
Apparently Costas will maintain his role at NBC Sports and will join the MLB Network as a studio host and will also do some play-by-play. On Thursday, Bob Costas will interview Joe Torre and discuss his new book, which Torre claims he had little to do with.

Hey Joe, when your name is on it, it's all yours.
