Ryan Seacrest tapped by Fox Sports to host pregame and halftime shows for the networks upcoming presentation of Superbowl XLII.
The American Idol host will be what the network is calling the “entertainment host” for Fox NFL Sunday’s broadcast of the event this coming February.
“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 Fox Sports TV Group chairman David Hill in a statement.
“Naturally, we’d like our broadcast to reflect that growth, so we’ve expanded our pregame lineup beyond the realm of sports,” he added. “You’d be hard-pressed to find a more talented and popular host on television and radio than Ryan Seacrest, and we’re delighted that he’ll be joining us for our coverage of Super Bowl XLII.”
Fox Sports’ coverage of the event will begin on February 3rd at 2:00 p.m. ET, live from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
