Super Bowl protests won't be ignored, NBC says

Fred Gaudelli, the executive producer of the Super Bowl, told reporters Tuesday night that the network would indeed capture any kneeling at the game.

Regarding football players kneeling during the national anthem before games, Gaudelli-the executive producer of "Sunday Night Football", "Thursday Night Football", and Super Bowl LII-said that any such protests during the Super Bowl will be covered live.

While national anthem protests have slowed around the NFL, it has still dominated national conversation throughout this season. The Olympic Winter Games will be held from February 9-25 in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

NBC Will Show Protesting NFL Players Live on Camera During the Super Bowl

Despite ratings softness during the regular National Football League season, NBC expects Super Bowl LII to set a single-day record for ad revenue by a media company.

Live events remain a bright spot for television advertisers as more viewers tend to watch their favorite shows on demand and fast-forward through the commercials.

There was no immediate confirmation by the Russian military, which is providing air support to government forces fighting rebels. The ministry said two Russian service personnel were killed in a mortar attack on the base by rebels, according to TASS.

The anthem protest conversation reached new heights following Donald Trump's comments and tweets demanding that teams remove any players who choose to kneel. It is meant to call attention to what the protesting players see as a pattern of racism in the treatment of African-Americans by USA police.

Lovinger said about 30% of his revenue was coming for advertiser who are buying spots in both big events.

"All we've seen is enthusiasm", he said.
