Bob Costas Birthday

March 1, 2012 by staff 

Bob Costas Birthday, Robert Quinlan Costas (born March 22, 1952) is an American sportscaster, on the air for NBC Sports television since the early 1980s.
Bob Costas was born in Queens, New York. He is the son of Jayne (née Quinlan), of Irish descent, and John George Costas, of Greek descent and an electrical engineer. In Ken Burns’ Baseball (TV Series), Costas indicated that he had a very poor relationship with his father, but did not go into specifics.

He grew up in Commack, New York, graduating from Commack High School South. Following high school, he majored in Communications & Rhetorical Studies at Syracuse University where he dropped out of school. Later he received an honorary degree from S. I. Newhouse School of Communications.

Costas was married from 1983 to 2001 to Carole “Randy” Randall Krummenacher. They had two children, son Keith (born 1986) and daughter Taylor (born 1989). Costas once jokingly promised Minnesota Twins center fielder Kirby Puckett that if he was batting over .350 by the time his child was born he would name the baby Kirby. Kirby was hitting better than .350, but Bob’s son initially was not given a first (or second) name of Kirby.

After Puckett reminded Costas of the agreement, the birth certificate was changed to “Keith Michael Kirby Costas”. On March 12, 2004, Costas married his second wife, Jill Sutton. Costas resides in St. Louis, Missouri.
