At today’s Super Bowl media conferences, we learned a little more about what to expect for the game day telecast of the Super Bowl. CBS is planning seven hours of pregame coverage, featuring an interview with President Joe Biden, James Corden interviewing halftime show performer The Weeknd, and short films on women in the NFL and the integration of the NFL (titled “After Jackie”).
This season’s coverage will certainly look a little different, due to COVID. CBS has about fifteen percent fewer employees working on site in Tampa for this year’s big game, and those workers are spread out using more mobile units to allow for social distancing. Many other workers will be working remotely. Because media week has been completely virtual, all player interviews are being conducted via Zoom.
Tune in for Super Bowl LV on Sunday, Feb. 7 as the Kansas City Chiefs play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. Follow Florida National News for more coverage leading up to the big game.
