Robert Quinlan Costas (1952-) was at the van of a "changing of the guard" in sports broadcasting during the 1970s and beyond. His career took off when he began calling games for the ABA's "Spirits of St. Louis" on KMOX radio in 1974. Here he honed skills that took him among the elite of sportscasters. He has called baseball, football, and the Olympics on radio or TV. A graduate of Syracuse University, Costas remains a St. Louis resident even though the demands of the job continually call him to the coasts.
