Costas To Return In Sochi

(Sochi, Russia) -- Bob Costas is returning to NBC's primetime coverage of the Sochi Olympics after a six-day absence due to an eye infection. Costas anchored the network's coverage at the start of the Sochi Games but the eye condition worsened and NBC opted to replace him with "Today" show host Matt Lauer beginning with last Tuesday's primetime show. It marked the first time since 1988 that someone other than Costas has anchored the coverage.
