This is a big day in San Jose as after the big game, NBC Bay Area, (KNTV) will roll out its primetime Monday-Friday newscast with anchors, Raj Mathai, Jessica Aguirre, and weatherman, Jeff Ranieri. Terry McSweeney will do a live shot from Arizona and Peggy Bunker will do the same from Levi's Stadium, the site for Super Bowl 50 a year from now.
With almost all eyes glued to the game and an audience surpassing 100 million people, and millions here, one need not underestimate the significance of this event from a local standpoint.
"It's a great opportunity for every NBC affiliate, but especially for us at KNTV," said Mathai to 415 Media. (KNTV is an owned and operated station by NBC). "This is a very local story considering the game is in Santa Clara in 12 months. We're on the clock."
