Bob Costas has won twenty-four Emmy Awards--more than any other sports broadcaster--and been a prominent part of the coverage of every major sport over the past three decades. His versatility has been recognized with awards and nominations in the categories of hosting, play-by-play, writing, journalism, news, and entertainment. He is the only person ever to have won Emmys in news, sports, and entertainment. Bob's peers have named him the National Sportscaster of the Year a record eight times, and in 2012, he was elected to the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame and selected for the Walter Cronkite Award for distinction in journalism. Bob's thoughtful commentaries on a variety of issues have established him as one of his generation's most distinctive voices.
