Costas and Button to host U.S. Figure Skating Championships
Bob Costas and Dick Button will serve as the hosts of NBC’s
coverage when the nation’s best skaters take the ice in St. Paul, Minn., for
the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in primetime on Saturday Jan. 26 (4-6
p.m., ET & 8-11 p.m., ET) and Sunday, Jan. 27 (7-9 p.m., ET).
NBC’s Olympic host, and Button, the most recognizable voice in figure skating,
will be joined by Tom Hammond (play-by-play), Scott Hamilton (analyst), Sandra
Bezic (analyst), Tracy Wilson (analyst), Andrea Joyce (reporter), and Olympic
Canadian pairs champions Jamie Sale and David Pelletier (analysts) to form the
deepest talent roster ever assembled to broadcast the figure skating national
championships. This is the first year of a multiyear agreement between
NBC Sports and U.S. Figure Skating Association.
