Social media plays a critical role in large sporting events for both the broadcasting network and the brand sponsors. This year NBC Sports elevated the social integration during their on-air broadcast, expanding the reach across networks and dedicated moments on multiple channels. Unlike the disappointing execution by FOX Sports for the Super Bowl, NBC was very deliberate and thoughtful with their integrations driving value for the viewer.
