NEW HBO SPORTS SHOW MARKS BRYANT GUMBEL'S RETURN TO SPORTS
Published February 7, 1995
NBC "Today" host Bryant Gumbel was expected to be named today as the host of HBO Sports's new quarterly sports-magazine show. Gumbel's new one-year contract with "Today" does not preclude other work, such as the HBO show. HBO reportedly tried to get NBC's Bob Costas, but his work on "Dateline" prevented any deal (N.Y TIMES, 2/7).
