The NY Post’s Don Kaplan revisists yesterday’s news that Bob Costas sub stint on Larry King Live may not last…
He said he is not sure if there will be time for him to work for CNN next year. “At the time that I agreed to do [’Larry King’] NBC had not acquired football for Sunday nights, and I’m not sure what my other assignments might be down the road.”
Costas and CNN hit a road bump in August when he refused to host an episode of “Larry King” devoted to coverage of Natalee Holloway, the teen missing in Aruba since last summer.
“I never tried to make a big deal out of it, but to clarify, I had it in my agreement with them [CNN] that if I was uncomfortable with the proposed subject matter of a given show that I could opt out of it,” Costas said.
