When she substitutes for the ailing Bob Costas on tonight’s (Friday) Winter Olympics coverage on NBC, Meredith Vieira will become the first woman to anchor primetime Olympics coverage solo, the Hollywood Reporter observed today.

Vieira formerly co-anchored the Today show with Matt Lauer, who has also substituted for Costas this week.
