Ep. 36 - Michael Fiur

Updated: Feb 3

"The lines are almost blurred other than you do ultimately have the athletes playing on the playing field. Then you're integrating these other elements. But I think they're critical. I think that ultimately fans are looking for that 360 experience."

Michael Fiur’s work will begin when the Super Bowl ends this Sunday. For the 16th year in a row, Michael and his team will produce the Lombardi Trophy Presentation in which the winning team will accept their trophy after the contest. In addition to the Super Bowl postgame, Michael was involved with producing several halftime shows during his time with Radio City Music Hall, and we relive some of those shows in this episode. Michael also discusses his other production work, including the entire program around the College Football Playoff Championship and the US Open. He shares what goes into bringing life to the areas around the competition and how important he feels the entertainment component is to making games into events.
