Sports Media Weekly Podcast No. 90- Media at Super Bowl XLVI

Welcome to show XC.

Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are devoting the entire program to the media at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.  We have no news segment, but two guests…

We start off the show joined by Neil Best, sports business and media columnist with Newsday.  Neil is covering the Giants for the paper and shares with us his experiences in Indianapolis and how the New York media is covering the team.

We are then joined by Dial Global Sports‘ (formerly Westwood One) Kevin Haraln, who will be calling the game with Boomer Esiason for the nationwide radio network.  Kevin fills us in on his busy schedule prior to the game, and how preparing to call a Super Bowl is similar in some ways, and different in others, than calling the action during the regular season.  As many of you know Kevin handles play-by-play for NFL and College Basketball on CBS and the NBA on TNT.
