On Sunday, Feb. 3, Super Bowl LIII will mark the 20th overall Super Bowl broadcast by CBS – the most of any network. When the game kicks off at 6:30 PM, ET from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga., CBS Sports will have a new team in front of, and behind, the camera.
In their second year together as THE NFL ON CBS’ lead announce team, Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will call their first Super Bowl together. And veteran CBS Sports producer Jim Rikhoff will be in the truck as the lead Super Bowl producer for the first time in his career.
“Building on the great chemistry among Jim, Tony and Tracy that has been nurtured and developed by Jim Rikhoff during their almost two full seasons together, they have continued to get better week-to-week as the season has progressed,” says Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports. “Both Jim and Tony have shown the ability to look forward, not just backward, in their analysis and commentary during a game. And, as the team gets set to call their first Super Bowl together, there is no doubt they will be up to the task of providing the entertaining, informative analysis and commentary viewers have quickly come to expect from them.”
