Our coverage of Super Bowl XLVIII actually begins on Monday, January 27th with the debut of “Seven Days to Sunday: The Road to Super Bowl XLVIII.” The hour-long preview show will air each night, Monday through Saturday, during the week leading up to the biggest game of the year. “Seven Days to Sunday” will be hosted by Scott Graham and will feature interviews with players from both teams participating in Super Bowl XLVIII, as well as coaches and other special guests, including Commissioner Roger Goodell. The show will also contain a nightly flashback segment, as WestwoodOne delves into its deep archives to remember previous Super Bowls with old highlights and reflections from some of the game’s greatest legends. Each night’s show will be co-hosted by a different WestwoodOne analyst, including James Lofton, Rod Woodson and Mark Malone, among others.
