That didn’t take long. After losing Bob Costas to MLB Network this week, HBO Sports announced today that they’re sticking FOX Sports’ MLB and NFL pay-by-play announcer Joe Buck into the role formerly held by Costas. Buck will host a quarterly sports talk show with a town-hall format launching in May. Rick Bernstein, executive producer of HBO Sports says, “We will craft the series to showcase Joe’s character and personality. Joe is a tremendous broadcaster and we are thrilled to develop this new platform with him.”
Whether Buck will say “fetus-faced windbag” on the show is still to be determined.
