“It’s all settled quietly and happily for all concerned,” Costas told The New York Post, which confirmed the news with the network. The broadcaster also told the paper that he will continue to work for MLB Network, where he’s set to take part in its Hall of Fame inductee announcement this month, along with calling 20 or so games for the network.

I believe his late night show was "Costas Coast to Coast".

 

I like the that show quite a bit.  One guest. in depth, but laid back.

 

EDIT:  Side note, in 1988 during the Olympics in Seoul a local radio station got his number and called him to talk him.  This call/interview was not set-up in advance and Costas luckily happened to be in his room.

 

For almost 20 minutes he sarcastically ripped them for getting a hold of him in SK, and in between jokes he would answer questions honestly and with great insight.

 

I used to like him, but on that day never was he ever as funny before or since.  Deadpan, sarcastic, relatable and charming, all in one shot.

 

In that bygone era it is what you would call radio gold.
