NBC has landed just-retired New York Giants running back Tiki Barber to report for the network -- principally the Today show -- on sports and lifestyle. The announcement of the deal, said to be worth more than $10 million over four years, was made at a news conference at NBC News headquarters in New York's Rockefeller Plaza that included newly appointed NBC Universal chief Jeff Zucker; NBC News President Steve Capus, and NBC Sports and Olympics Chairman Dick Ebersol. Barber will reportedly be featured on NBC's Today show and is expected to have a major role in NBC's coverage of the 2008 summer Olympics in Beijing.
