Tuesday was Media Day. After retrieving our Day Pass credentials, it was on to Newark, New Jersey. A shuttle bus was provided to take media to the Prudential Center.After a tight security check we were able to walk onto the field, with fans watching from the bleachers and media swarming around celebrities and athletes. There was a one-hour time limit imposed for Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks interviews. Our team spoke with coach Pete Carroll, quarterback Russell Wilson, defensive back Kameron Chancellor of the Seattle Seahawks; coach John Fox, offensive lineman Vinston Painter, Champ Bailey of the Denver Broncos; sports anchor Otis Livingston WCBS-TV; tv personality Regis Philbin; “Extra’s” AJ Calloway; and our mentor and friend SVP NFL Frank Supovitz,to whom we owe this Super Bowl Week privilege.
Super Bowl week started on Monday, January 27, 2014 with our HSSM team heading to Media Center at the Sheraton Hotel in Manhattan at 7:00 a.m. After a brief security check, we were able to get our credentials and proceed to Radio Row, where our team had the chance to talk with and interview media professionals and celebrities. Among them were NY Jets owner Woody Johnson, President & CEO, NY/NJ Super Bowl XLVIII Host Company Al Kelly, and three time PIX 11 Emmy Award winning anchor and reporter Sukanya Krishnan. Nick Wright, radio show host, enlightened us by giving advice on marketing ourselves, pursuing a career within our interest, and avoiding internet posts that may prove embarrassing and damaging to our career.
