For the 29th consecutive year, and 43rd time overall, Westwood One will be the exclusive radio network home of the Super Bowl. This year’s contest will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on February 7th, with the Carolina Panthers taking on the Denver Broncos.
Kevin Harlan will handle the play-by-play duties for the Super Bowl for the sixth straight year and Boomer Esiason will serve as one of two color analysts—his 16th consecutive with the network. With Boomer pulling double duty with CBS-TV, Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Fouts will also join the crew as an analyst to form a three-man booth. Mark Malone and Hall of Famer James Lofton will once again report from the sidelines. Jim Gray will anchor pre-game and halftime coverage, with appearances by both Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and New England quarterback Tom Brady. Scott Graham, Hall of Famer Rod Woodson, Super Bowl winning head coach Mike Holmgren and Super Bowl XXXIV MVP Kurt Warner will also contribute to the pregame coverage.
Our gameday coverage begins at 2:00 PM ET, with “Super Bowl Preview”, co-hosted by Scott Graham and Boomer Esiason, followed by “Super Bowl Insider”, co-hosted by Mark Malone and Hall of Famer James Lofton at 3:00 PM ET. At 4:00 PM ET, live coverage from the stadium kicks off with “Super Sunday”, the Super Bowl 50 pregame show, hosted by Scott Graham. The Super Bowl 50 game broadcast begins at 5:00 PM ET, with kickoff anticipated to be approximately 6:30 PM ET.
The broadcast of Super Bowl 50 on Westwood One will be available on hundreds of Westwood One affiliates around the United States, on SiriusXM NFL Radio Channel 88, on military bases around the world and hundreds of ships at sea on the American Forces Radio Network, and on NFL Audio Pass from NFL.com and Tune In Premium.
Throughout the week leading up to Super Bowl 50, Westwood One Sports will also produce a nightly show, Seven Days to Sunday—The Road to Super Bowl 50. This hour-long preview show will air each night during the week leading up to the biggest game of the year, beginning on Monday night, February 1st, and continuing through Saturday night, February 6th.
Hosted each night by Scott Graham, the voice of NFL Films, the nightly program will feature interviews with players from the two teams participating in Super Bowl 50, as well as coaches and other special guests. The show will also contain a nightly Super Bowl flashback segment, as Westwood One accesses 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 Westwood One NFL analyst, such as Hall of Famer James Lofton, among others.
