STATEMENT FROM CBS SPORTS ON POWER OUTAGE DURING SUPER BOWL XLVII to be attributed to JENNIFER SABATELLE, Vice President, Communications, CBS Sports

“Immediately after the power failure in the Superdome, we lost numerous cameras and some audio powered by sources in the Superdome.  We utilized CBS’s back-up power and at no time did we leave the air.  During the interruption, CBS Sports’ Steve Tasker, Solomon Wilcots and our studio team reported on the situation as a breaking news story, providing updates and reports while full power was being restored to the dome including our sets and broadcast booth.  All commercial commitments during the broadcast are being honored.”
