Super Bowl Field Announcers
As for the announcers of the game itself, the voices of Jim Nantz (play-by-play), Tony Romo (analyst) and Tracy Wolfson (sideline reporter) are set to call their third Super Bowl as a trio.
It will be Nantz’s seventh Super Bowl in the CBS booth and Romo’s third; curiously it will be Romo’s first that doesn’t end in Tom Brady winning. Wolfson will serve alongside Evan Washburn as CBS’ sideline reporters for Super Bowl 58, with one being signed a team each. Reporter Jay Feely and rules analyst Gene Steratore will also be present for any further analysis of the game.
CBS to air alternative telecast
Univision will simulcast this year’s Super Bowl broadcast in Spanish but perhaps more curiously, Nickelodeon will broadcast a child-friendly Super Bowl, using the theme of Spongebob Squarepants.
As if the world wasn’t already Black Mirror enough, SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbakke) will be in the broadcast booth, with Sandy Cheeks (Carolyn Lawrence), Larry the Lobster (Mr. Lawrence), Dora The Explorer (Diana Zermeño), and Boots (Asher Colton Spence) providing further cutting-edge insight and unrivalled technical analysis. I had Dora down as more of an ice hockey fan, but there you go.
