Found August 04, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
PLAYERS: Bob Costas
One local news anchor was not happy with NBC’s Bob Costas for apparently going over his designated time frame last week during Olympics coverage, so he spent the first minute of his newscast ripping into the veteran broadcaster. Dan Hicken, who as been the sports director of 12 News in Jacksonville since 1991, ranted about Costas taking up too much time doing Olympics coverage. “Bob doesn’t know that 12 o’clock means 12 o’clock,” Hicken ranted. “It doesn’t mean 12:02, it doesn’t mean 12:04, it certaintly doesn’t mean 12:07. Bob, when it’s 12 o’clock, you say ‘goodnight.’” “I love him, though,” Hicken said. “He’s a great broadcaster.” So maybe Hicken isn’t so crazy after all? Yes he is. He apparently began railing on Costas via Twitter well before his TV meltdown. dang it bob…u have to wrap up interview..supposed to be off by midnight — Dan Hicken (@DanHicken) August 1, 2012 12:07 bob’s still talking…. — Dan Hicken (@DanHicken) August 1, 2012 curse you
