New York, NY – January 22, 2020 — CUMULUS MEDIA’s Westwood One, America’s largest audio network and the official network radio partner of the National Football League, will present comprehensive coverage and play-by-play of Super Bowl LIV, live from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida on Sunday, February 2, 2020. The network will feature a full schedule of game day programming leading up to kickoff, when the San Francisco 49ers take on the Kansas City Chiefs for the title. It is Kansas City’s third appearance in the Super Bowl, but their first since they won Super Bowl IV fifty years ago. This is the 7th appearance for the 49ers.
It’s the 11th time the Super Bowl will be played in Miami, and the 33rd consecutive year and the 47th time overall Westwood One will broadcast the Super Bowl, America’s biggest sporting event.
Kevin Harlan will handle the play-by-play duties for the Super Bowl for the tenth straight year, with Super Bowl XXXIV MVP and Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner returning for the second consecutive year as the lead analyst. Former NFL referee turned rules analyst Gene Steratore will also join the radio broadcast booth for this year’s Super Bowl, after having served in a similar role for CBS Sports last season. Former All-Pro Offensive Lineman Tony Boselli returns for a fourth straight year as sideline reporter, and will be joined by longtime field reporter Laura Okmin, who is making her debut on the Super Bowl crew. Jim Gray will anchor the pregame and halftime coverage, with appearances by Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and New England Patriots quarterback and six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady. This is Gray’s 19th consecutive Super Bowl for the network. Scott Graham returns for his 11th Super Bowl with Westwood One, and will also contribute to the pregame and postgame show coverage.
Game day coverage begins at 2:00 PM ET, with “Super Bowl Preview”, co-hosted by Scott Graham and Kurt Warner, followed by “Super Bowl Insider” hosted by Scott Graham, and featuring Tony Boselli, Terrell Davis, Rod Woodson, Brian Griese and Ian Rapoport at 3:00 PM ET. At 4:00 PM ET, live coverage from the stadium kicks off with “Super Sunday,” the Super Bowl LIV pregame show, also hosted by Scott Graham. The Super Bowl game broadcast begins at 5:00 PM ET, hosted by Jim Gray, with kickoff expected at approximately 6:30 PM ET.
Westwood One will also produce “Seven Days to Sunday—The Road to Super Bowl LIV.” This hour-long preview show will air each night during the week leading up to Super Sunday, beginning on Sunday night, January 26th, and continuing through Saturday night, February 1st, 2020. Hosted by Scott Graham, the nightly program will feature interviews with players from the two teams participating in Super Bowl LIV, as well as coaches and other special guests. Each night’s show will be co-hosted by a different Westwood One analyst, including Hall of Famers Kurt Warner, Rod Woodson, Terrell Davis and Jason Taylor, and 2020 Hall of Fame finalist Tony Boselli. Ian Rapoport will also contribute nightly to each show. The show will also contain a nightly “Super Bowl Flashback,” as Westwood One commemorates the NFL’s 100th season by accessing its vast archives of past Super Bowls. The flashbacks will feature memorable highlights and reflections from some of the game’s greatest legends.
