CBS Sports Network announced Monday that it will feature original Super Bowl programming.
During the week leading up to the NFL championship game, CBS Sports Network will air Super Bowl Live and Inside the Super Bowl from New Orleans. Super Bowl Live will air Tuesday-Friday (Jan. 29-Feb. 1) from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. and be hosted by Greg Gumbel, while Inside the Super Bowl will run from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. beginning Monday, Jan. 28. Regular weekly programs, NFL Monday QB, Rome and the Tim Brando Show will originate from New Orleans that week as well. CBS Sports Network's entries are part of CBS Corp.'s efforts to maximize the Super Bowl.
CBS Sports Network will also air extended postgame coverage of Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3, after the CBS broadcast network ends its coverage. The NFL Today's James Brown, Bill Cowher, Boomer Esiason, Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe will be featured.
"There is no event bigger than the Super Bowl and we're dedicating more resources than ever before to produce in-depth live week-long programming," said David Berson, executive vice president of CBS Sports and president of CBS Sports Network, in a statement. "Super Bowl week is a great opportunity to showcase CBS Sports Network to viewers. As the home of Super Bowl XLVII, CBS Sports and its array of platforms will deliver unprecedented 24/7 coverage."
Last week CBS Sports announced that it will set up four stages at New Orleans' Jackson Square, to house its programming for Super Bowl week.
