Where to Listen to Super Bowl XLVII on Radio

From Local Radio to Satellite

By

Not everyone has a chance to watch the Super Bowl on TV. Some folks are at work, on the road, away from their homes and televisions, or in some cases just prefer radio over TV.. You might be surprised to know that last year 23.1 million people listened to the game on radio. Edison Research compiled the stats and also says "...listeners accessed the live broadcast in multiple listening environments, including the home, while driving, at work and other locations, on over 680 stations nationwide."

For whatever reason, there are alternatives to planting yourself in front of your big flat screen and watching the game
