SNL Kagan: CBS Broke Even Or Lost A Little In Super Bowl XLVII Broadcast
Published February 8, 2013
NANTZ' NUTTY NIGHT: CBS' Jim Nantz, who called Super Bowl XLVII, reflected on the broadcast and said, "We went from a blowout to a blackout to a shootout. I loved being there just to see it all unfold. I could have done without the middle part of that equation, but that's sports, that's life -- you just never know. Who could have ever predicted something like that?" In California, Michael Lev writes considering how "unexpected that scenario was, and how potentially chaotic, I thought CBS handled it well." CBS Lead NFL Producer Lance Barrow "did his best to keep his team calm." Barrow during the blackout "called Nantz' cell phone -- their only means of communication -- and relayed a brief message: Sit tight; we don't know how long it's going to be." Nantz added, "Like every single other person inside the dome that night, you go through a mental checklist of all the worst-case scenarios. You just don't know" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 2/8).
