As Super Bowl LIV approaches, you can expect an all-out blitz of 49ers-related programming from Bay Area radio and TV outlets.
Getting into the act in a big way is KNBR, the 49ers flagship station, which will air replays of all five of the 49ers’ Super Bowl victories over two weekends.
KNBR’s “Quest for Six Marathon” launches on Saturday, Jan. 25 and will air in three-hour blocks from 9 a.m. to midnight. The marathon then will re-air next Saturday, Feb. 1. Here is the schedule:
— 9 a.m.-noon: Super Bowl XVI (Jan. 24, 1982)
— Noon-3 p.m.: Super Bowl XIX (Jan. 20, 1985)
— 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.: Super Bowl XXIII (Jan. 22, 1989)
— 6 p.m.- 9 p.m.: Super Bowl XIV (Jan. 28, 1990)
— 9 p.m.-midnight: Super Bowl XIX (Jan. 29, 1995)
KNBR program director Jeremiah Crowe reports that the audio for these games was unearthed through “a colossal effort” on the behalf of the 49ers, local broadcasters, local producers, NFL Films & Westwood One.
In the week leading up to the Super Bowl, KNBR’s “Papa & Lund” show (10 a.m.-2 p.m. PT) will air from Radio Row at the The Miami Beach Convention Center Monday through Friday. The “Murph & Mac” morning show (6 a.m.- 10 a.m.) will originate from Radio Row Wednesday through Friday.
KNBR’s game-day schedule will be as follows:
— 9 a.m.: “KNBR’s Red & Gold Zone” (with Adam Copeland)
— 10 a.m.: Super Bowl LIV edition of the “49ers Pregame Show” (with Larry Krueger, John Lund and Dennis Brown)
— 2 p.m.: SUPER BOWL LIV, 49ers vs. Chiefs (Greg Papa, play-by-play; Tim Ryan analyst)
— 8:30 p.m.: “49ers Postgame Show” (with Krueger, Lund and Brown)
