(CBS) — On Jan. 15, 1967, CBS Sports’ Ray Scott and Jack Whitaker welcomed viewers of the CBS Television Network to “this first meeting ever between the American Football League and National Football League,” in what would become known as Super Bowl I.

On Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016 at 3:30 p.m., CBS Sports’ Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will set the scene to call the Golden Celebration of that “first meeting” as the CBS Television Network culminates its coverage of the 2015-2016 NFL season with SUPER BOWL 50, live from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

The broadcast will mark the Network’s 19th Super Bowl broadcast overall, the most of any network.

Nantz and Simms will call the action, marking their fourth time calling the game together. Nantz will call play-by-play for his fourth Super Bowl and sixth overall as he hosted two others for the Network. Simms will provide analysis for his eighth Super Bowl, second only to John Madden as analyst for the most Super Bowl broadcasts, and the sixth for CBS Sports.

Nantz and Simms will be joined on the broadcast by reporters Tracy Wolfson and Evan Washburn, who will serve as sideline reporters for their first Super Bowl, as well as NFL Officiating Expert Mike Carey.

The network’s live four-hour Super Bowl pre-game show, THE SUPER BOWL TODAY starting at 11:00 a.m., will include host James Brown, analysts Boomer Esiason, Bill Cowher, Tony Gonzalez and Bart Scott, along with Ian Eagle, Greg Gumbel, Trent Green and Amy Trask, NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, as well as reporters Wolfson, Washburn and Allie LaForce, and Contributor Jim Rome.

Other contributing guests including players and coaches will be announced later.
