We are about to get into serious Super Bowl XLVII coverage mode starting Monday, January 28, when both the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers arrive in New Orleans. A record number of national radio and television networks will be on hand in “The Big Easy” to cover the big game.

Why such massive coverage for Super Bowl XLVII?

It has nothing to do with the matchup between Baltimore and San Francisco.

However, over the past year, there has been an explosion of more national media outlets covering the NFL. Television and radio, or shall we say the two main engines that drive the popularity of the NFL, will descend upon New Orleans with cameras and microphones ready to capture every possible storyline.

Nationally, this will be the first Super Bowl ever for the CBS Sports Radio NetworkNBC Sports Radio Network and Yahoo Sports Radio. All three plan extensive live coverage each day starting Monday from New Orleans.    

The three new radio outlets will be joined by Super Bowl veterans ESPN Radio, Fox Sports Radio, Sirius XM NFL Radio and Mad Dog Radio. Starting Monday, it will be almost impossible to turn on a radio and not find Super Bowl coverage.

As for television, both NBC Sports Network and CBS Sports Network have beefed up their NFL coverage. They will be airing shows all week from New Orleans.

The NFL Network as well as ESPN will offer the most pre-Super Bowl coverage with each network logging around 140 hours of coverage.







CBS will air the Super Bowl, so this will be a great chance for the network to promote both the CBS Sports Network as well as CBS Radio Sports with all programming coming live from New Orleans. 

CBS This Morning, the CBS Evening News and Face the Nation will also be broadcast live from the Super Bowl site Monday through the weekend.  

Broadband wise, will be streaming live content every day. It will also be the only place on the Web where you will see Super Bowl XLVII live.

By the way, this the second straight year that the game will be seen on broadband.    

On Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, 2013, CBS will start its pregame show NFL Today beginning at 2 p.m. ET with the kickoff coming around 6:30 p.m. ET.

Dial Global Radio has the play-by-play action of the game on the radio with coverage starting at 4 p.m. ET Sunday.
