CBS’s Statement on Super Bowl Delay

All commercial commitments honored, CBS says

Here is CBS's statement on the Superdome power outage that delayed Super Bowl XLVII by 35 minutes:

"Immediately after the power failure in the Superdome, we lost numerous cameras and some audio powered by sources in the Superdome.  We utilized CBS’s back-up power and at no time did we leave the air.  During the interruption, CBS Sports’ Steve Tasker, Solomon Wilcots and our studio team reported on the situation as a breaking news story, providing updates and reports while full power was being restored to the dome including our sets and broadcast booth.  All commercial commitments during the broadcast are being honored.”
