Seacrest to Host Super Bowl on Fox

Fox has tapped “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest as “entertainment host” for the network’s coverage of Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 3.

With a plan to utilize Mr. Seacrest to cover and wrap up entertainment portions of the NFL program and interview celebrities in attendance, the “E! News” host will join Fox’s NFL regulars Terry Bradshaw, Curt Menefee, Howie Long and Jimmy Johnson for the show.

“The Super Bowl has grown to become a landmark holiday on the American calendar, attracting not only the sports world, but the biggest stars in music and entertainment,” said David Hill, chairman of Fox Sports Television Group. “Naturally, we’d like our broadcast to reflect that growth, so we’ve expanded our pregame lineup beyond the realm of sports. You’d be hard pressed to find a more talented and popular host on television and radio than Ryan Seacrest and we’re delighted he’ll be joining us for our coverage of Super Bowl XLII.”

Fox Sports’ coverage of the event will begin at 2 p.m. ET from the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ as the fifth Super Bowl to broadcast on the network.

“The Super Bowl is a family tradition that has become an all day holiday event in the US and around the globe,” said Mr. Seacrest. “It’s bigger than a game and I am thrilled about joining the absolute best sports broadcast team in the world.”
