CBS has the main team of Jim Nantz and Tony Romo in the Super Bowl broadcast booth, with special guests lined up for the pregame show.

We have reached Super Bowl 58, with the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs playing for the championship. It’s CBS’ turn in the Super Bowl rotation to broadcast the game.

As you would expect, CBS is going all out with an expanded pregame show, additional reporters for the game, and an alternate broadcast for kids on Nickelodeon.

What Time Does CBS Coverage Start?

CBS starts coverage at 2 p.m. ET with The NFL Today; kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET. Host James Brown, along with analysts Phil Simms, Bill Cowher, Boomer Esiason, and Nate Burleson. Five-time All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt will make another appearance on the main set in his first season of retirement. NFL Insider Jonathan Jones will join the show to provide updates from around the league.

CBS will also have Ian Eagle, Charles Davis, Matt Ryan, and Jason McCourty provide additional commentary before kickoff. NFL Network’s Kyle Brandt will be one of several special guests CBS will have during the pregame show.

Who Are the Game Announcers for 49ers-Chiefs?

The lead CBS crew of Jim Nantz, Tony Romo, and Tracy Wolfson will be calling their third Super Bowl together. This will be the third straight Chiefs game this crew has covered.

CBS is adding Evan Washburn as a second sideline reporter with Jay Feely, who will be on the sidelines to provide kicking analysis. Former NFL and NCAA basketball official Gene Steratore is the rules analyst for the broadcast.

Nantz will be calling his seventh Super Bowl as a play-by-play announcer. He has been the lead play-by-play announcer for the NFL on CBS since 2004, after being the network’s NFL studio host for six seasons.
