NEW YORK — Bob Costas had plenty of moments to reflect on his 28 years as an Olympic host after announcing his transition out of the role on Thursday, but four minutes stood out just after noon at Rockefeller Center.
At a press event, a montage of Costas’ highlights — from his first primetime Games in Barcelona in 1992 to Rio last summer — played while Costas sat a few feet from the screen, head craned right the whole time.
“Just appreciation that they took the time to put it together,” Costas said shortly after. “It was a pretty good cross section. I had forgotten some of it.”
