Bob Costas won't be donning mouse ears after all. The famed broadcaster who had been in talks with Disney-owned ABC will instead take on an expanded role at HBO as part of a multi-year contract. According to The Associated Press, Costas's HBO pact covers his talk show On the Record as well as appearances on Inside the NFL. It remains unclear how all of this will affect his deal with NBC, which expires this summer.
