The Super Bowl is known for its TV broadcast, but there are plenty of options for listening to the game on the radio. We break down how.

The Super Bowl is just about here! The Kansas City Chiefs face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida this Sunday in Super Bowl 55. Kickoff is approximately 6:30 p.m. ET. CBS is broadcasting the game and a host of networks around the world will air the biggest NFL game of the year.

While over 100 million people in America will watch the Super Bowl on television, plenty will listen to the game on the radio. Maybe you’re busy at work and aren’t in front of a television or computer for a live stream. Or, maybe you just prefer the way a radio broadcast offers a different approach to calling a game.

Whatever the reason, there will be plenty of options for listening to Super Bowl LV on the radio. The primary national options are Westwood One radio and SiriusXM NFL Radio. You can go to the Westwood One website to find your specific station. The radio broadcast will feature Kevin Harlan, Kurt Warner, Tony Boselli, and Laura Okmin calling the game.

If you’re in the Tampa market and looking for a radio option, WXTB 97.9 FM is the Bucs flagship station. Gene Deckerhoff handles play by play, Dave Moore is the color analyst, and T.J. Rives works the sideline. A Spanish radio broadcast is available at WTMP 96.1. Carlos Bohorquez handles play by play and Martin Gramatica is the color analyst.

If you’re in the Kansas City market, 106.5 The Wolf is the Chiefs flagship station. A Spanish radio broadcast is available at KCWJ 1030 AM. For the latter, Enrique Morales handles play-by-play, Oscar Monterroso is the color commentator, and Hannah Bassham is the field reporter.

If you are in the military and deployed outside the United States, the game will air on AFN Radio. There will be a digital stream via AFN 360.
