WATCH: WFAN’s ‘Chalk Talk’ With Bob Costas

Broadcasting Legend Discusses A Variety Of Topics That Are Currently At The Forefront Of American Culture

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Sportscaster extraordinaire Bob Costas joined Gary Myers recently for an entertaining edition of WFAN’s “Chalk Talk.”

The two Syracuse University graduates got into a host of topics, including a lengthy discussion about President Donald Trump’s clash with NFL players over anthem protests and Colin Kaepernick’s silence on the issue, and Costas’ readiness to offer his political views during his commentary.

“In truth, I am not an extreme left wing guy. I am a fairly moderate guy who actually agrees with some conservative viewpoints and certainly, respectfully, hears all conservative viewpoints,” Costas said. “I think the positions that I have taken have been common-sense positions.”
