WFAN, WCBS to air separate Super Bowl radio calls

Most people will be glued to their TV sets on Super Bowl Sunday, but for the unfortunate few who will be stuck at work or in the car, there are radio options available to listen to the Giants-Patriots game.
The Giants’ radio network will be heard exclusively on WFAN (660-AM), starting with the pregame show at 5 p.m. and game broadcast at 6:30 p.m. Bob Papa and Carl Banks provide the booth coverage. You can be sure WFAN will have loads of pre-game talk prior to the 5 p.m. show.
The national radio broadcast, from Westwood One/Dial Global Sports, can be heard on WCBS (880-AM) in New York. Kevin Harlan and Boomer Esiason handle the game call. The pregame and halftime host is Jim Gray. The sideline reporters will be James Lofton (Patriots) and Mark Malone (Giants). Scott Graham will host the Super Bowl Preview at 3 p.m. and Super Sunday at 4 p.m. The pregame show starts at 5 p.m.
Other major and local stations carrying the Super Bowl national radio broadcast will be Danbury’s WLAD (800-AM), Boston’s WEEI (850-AM), Philadelphia’s WIP (610-AM), Buffalo’s WGR (550-AM) and WBEN (930-AM) and Chicago’s WSCR (670-AM). In Northeast Pennsylvania, the game can be heard on WEJL (630-AM) and WBAX (1240-AM).
Hartford’s WTIC (1080-AM) is normally on the Giants radio network but affiliates can only carry the Westwood One broadcast. The same holds true for Patriots radio network station WCKL (560-AM) in Catskill, which can be heard in the northern reaches of our coverage area.
