FOX News’ Shepard Smith will headline FOX Super Sunday, a three-hour event on FOX Broadcasting beginning at 9:00 am ET on Super Bowl Sunday, February 3.
The special will kick off with a one-hour edition of FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, followed by a two-hour block of political and sports coverage with Smith live from Glendale, Ariz. just two days before the 22 state primary contest on Super Tuesday.
In making the announcement, Marty Ryan, Executive Producer of Political Programming, FOX News, said, “We are thrilled to be providing unprecedented political coverage on Super Bowl Sunday during one of the most highly anticipated election seasons in recent history. Drawing from the best resources on national and local platforms, FOX will bring together America’s two greatest passions – politics and football.”
Following a special edition of FOX News Sunday, Smith will be joined at 10:00 am ET by co-hosts Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly who will be live from election studio headquarters in New York. Together, they will examine the leading candidates along with the crucial states and key issues that could lead to the selection of a nominee by both parties on Super Tuesday. Additionally, they will explore the social and cultural impact of the Super Bowl and how it intertwines with politics.
FOX Super Sunday will also include a behind-the-scenes look as the action gets underway for the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, FOX Business Network’s Alexis Glick will offer a peek at the best commercials and the economics behind the biggest sporting event of the year while FOX News correspondents Carl Cameron and Major Garrett will provide live updates from the campaign trail alongside correspondent Bret Baier in Washington, D.C.
