Who is broadcasting Super Bowl 2023? A guide to the TV channel, announcers & more on Super Bowl 57 rights

The Super Bowl is the premier American television broadcast each year. Watched by roughly 100 million households (and even more total viewers, according to the league’s estimations), the entire event is a spectacle made for television.

Despite being such a staple in American culture, the Super Bowl never finds itself on the same channel in back-to-back years. The broadcast rights are rotated between NBC, CBS, and Fox, with ABC soon joining the group. 

Super Bowl 57 is set to be a terrific game with the Lombardi Trophy and football immortality on the line. Beyond the game itself, the halftime show and brand new commercials are a draw for anyone.

Who is broadcasting the Super Bowl in 2023?

Fox is broadcasting Super Bowl 57 on Feb. 12, 2023, taking its turn in a rotation of three networks that will soon become four. NBC, CBS, and Fox alternate Super Bowl broadcasts, and ABC will join the rotation with Super Bowl 61 in February 2021. 

Despite being such a hot commodity, Super Bowl broadcasting rights are actually set all the way through the 2033 season. CBS will broadcast Super Bowl 58 next year, followed by Fox again for Super Bowl 59.

How much does it cost to broadcast the Super Bowl?

The NFL does not sell the rights to broadcast the Super Bowl individually, so the cost is covered under what each of the networks pay for general NFL broadcasting rights. 

CBS, Fox and NBC all pay an excess of $2 billion to broadcast the NFL under the league’s new broadcast deal. Fox ($2.2 billion) is the biggest spender, NBC ($2 billion) spends the least and CBS ($2.1 billion) ranks right in the middle. These numbers are more than double what each side paid under the previous deal. The current deal was agreed upon in 2021.

Additionally, Amazon Prime pays $1 billion just for the “Thursday Night Football” window alone.

All of these agreements mean the NFL is making billions of dollars from its television partners, but the hefty price these networks pay – aside from Amazon Prime – comes with the benefit of being part of the coveted Super Bowl rotation.

Super Bowl announcers: Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen

Just when you think you have everything figured out about the Super Bowl broadcast, there is a major twist this year.

For the first time in more than two decades, Fox will broadcast the Super Bowl without Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the booth. Since Buck and Aikman left the network to join ESPN last spring, Kevin Burkhardt (play-by-play) and Greg Olsen (color analyst) have taken over as Fox’s top NFL broadcast team and will both be calling their first Super Bowl.

In fact, Olsen was still a player last time Fox broadcasted a Super Bowl. A longtime NFL tight end who wen to Super Bowl 50 with the Panthers, Olsen has quickly ascended to this role as Fox’s top color analyst but, despite solid reviews, could be demoted when Tom Brady retires and joins the network.

Burkhardt has been an NFL play-by-play broadcaster for Fox since 2013 and has risen through the ranks to become the new No. 1 with Buck out of the picture. He has also served as Fox’s Major League Baseball studio host.

Burkhardt will be only the sixth different play-by-play man for the Super Bowl since the start of the century, joining Buck, Al Michaels, Jim Nantz, Greg Gumbel, and Pat Summerall. Mike Tirico is expected to join the ranks when NBC hosts Super Bowl 60.

Super Bowl sideline reporters: Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi

Erin Andrews is the familiar face of this Super Bowl, as she has been on the sideline for three different Super Bowls already and is a veteran sideline reporter for Fox. 

Tom Rinaldi, on the other hand, is a new addition. He left ESPN for Fox in late 2020, so while he is a veteran sideline reporter himself, this will be his first Super Bowl for the network. Chris Myers previously served as Fox’s other Super Bowl sideline reporter opposite Andrews. 

One of Andrews and Rinaldi will be assigned to the AFC team, while the other will be assigned to the NFC side. 

What channel is the Super Bowl on?

Super Bowl 57 will be broadcast nationally on Fox.
