The biggest spectacle in American sports is here, and a group of familiar voices will be on the call.
Super Bowl 58 kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 11, showcasing a rematch of the 2020 Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.
The game is chock-full of storylines − both on and off the field. The 49ers hope to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots for the most Super Bowl wins by a single franchise, while Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, 28, looks for his third ring. And, of course, there’s Taylor Swift.
The TV crew will have plenty to discuss as the action unfolds Sunday night. Here’s who is on the call and who is in the studio.
