Audio from the Super Bowl blackout


Broadcasting via phoneMany of our fans and listeners have asked how it sounded on-air when the power was cut to the half of the Superdome where our broadcast booth was located on Sunday. Well, it sounded kind of like this…………. silence.

By the time that 90-second commercial spot was complete, we had established backup communication and Kevin Harlan was able to explain the scene to listeners by speaking into a landline telephone, as you can see in the picture on this page.

Here’s a taste of how it sounded as we came back on the air from New Orleans…
