REPORT HAS COSTAS-ISIAH TEAM LEADING NBC'S HOOP COVERAGE
Published November 25, 1997
Bob Costas will replace Marv Albert on NBC's new No. 1 NBA announcing team with Isiah Thomas, according to Rudy Martzke of USA TODAY. Martzke reports that Thomas "is completing negotiations with NBC for a contract in the $600,000 range." Martzke writes that Hannah Storm will take over Costas' role as studio host (USA TODAY, 11/25). But in N.Y., Richard Sandomir writes that either Greg Gumbel or Tom Hammond "will succeed" Albert (N.Y. TIMES, 11/25). In Toronto, Doug Smith adds that Thomas "will earn less" than $1M in his NBC deal, and that details "still need" to be finalized concerning his role at CNBC (TORONTO STAR, 11/25).
