No more pink eye jokes for Bob Costas. The long time NBC Host of the Olympics is passing the torch to Mike Tirico starting with the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Costas who has become the face of Olympic Coverage, since starting in 1992 is stepping down.

From the NBC Today Show report:

“I’m going to be like the rest of the country, watching Mike Tirico, who will be an able successor in Korea for the Winter Olympics beginning a year from today,” Costas told Matt Lauer on TODAY Thursday.

The two broadcasters also have a special connection through their college alma mater. Tirico was the first recipient of the annual scholarship in Costas’s name at Syracuse University.

“Someone who I grew up idolizing,” Tirico said about Costas on TODAY Thursday. “I went to Syracuse in large part for college because Bob did. I received a Bob Costas scholarship 30 years ago.”

Mike Tirico joined NBC after a stint at ESPN.
