Mike Tirico

It’s never easy replacing a legend. But NBC’s Mike Tirico will attempt to do so in February when he becomes the prime-time host of the network’s Olympic Winter Games coverage, taking over for Bob Costas, who held the position since 1992. For Tirico, however, it’s only one of many tasks he has taken on since moving to NBC in July 2016 after 25 years at ABC and ESPN. The former play-by-play host of “Monday Night Football” is now NBC’s voice for “Thursday Night Football” and the on-site host of “Football Night in America,” which leads into NBC’s Sunday night coverage. He also hosts NBC’s Triple Crown and golf coverage and is the voice

Today, Touch holds the licensing for the NFL, the NBA, the NHL, NASCAR, MLS and a growing number of collegiate teams In this interview with SportsTravel’s
