IBEW Members Broadcast Super Bowl LIII on CBS from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA

If you happened to see any of Sunday's Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots on CBS, then you saw your IBEW brothers and sisters hard at work on the sidelines and in the production trucks.

For the 28th time in Super Bowl history, IBEW camera personnel and technicians were responsible for bringing audiences around the world the sights and sounds of the NFL's biggest game.

There were nearly 300 members on the show, many of whom are from Local 1220, that worked in roughly 15 different job classifications - camera, audio, utility, replay, video engineering, graphics, editing, etc.

Sunday marked the 20th Super Bowl broadcasted by CBS, the most of any American network, and every single one of them has been done with IBEW labor. FOX Sports has also broadcasted 8 Super Bowls with the help of the IBEW.
