Westwood One, the official network radio partner of the NFL, will air the original CBS Radio broadcast of Super Bowl I on Monday, May 25, marking the first time the national CBS Radio broadcast has been replayed in its entirety. The broadcast will air twice on Memorial Day, at both noon ET and 8 PM ET as the Green Bay Packers battle the Kansas City Chiefs, with Jack Drees and Tom Hedrick calling all the action from the game that launched the biggest sports spectacle on the calendar each year.
Ryan Radtke will host the re-broadcast which will also include comments from Hall of Famers Bart Starr, Len Dawson, Vince Lombardi, Hank Stram and more, as they remember that historic game.
The broadcast will also feature an archived CBS Radio interview from 2000 with the late Lamar Hunt, the founder of the AFL, owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, and the man who gave the Super Bowl its name. The interview examines the genesis of the game and Super Sunday. Westwood One’s Kevin Harlan, who has broadcast the last 10 Super Bowls for the network, also interviews Tom Hedrick about what it was like to witness and be a part of broadcast history on January 15th, 1967. Coincidentally, years later, Hedrick was a professor at the University of Kansas, and Harlan was one of his students.
