WCBS-TV Rides Wave of Jets Playoff Run With Road to Glory

As the New York Jets make their way to Pittsburgh for this weekend’s AFC Championship game, WCBS-TV is right there with them.

Sports anchor Otis Livingston, traveling with the team, hosts Jets Road to Glory Saturday night at 7.

The one-hour special gives fans a preview of the matchup between the Steelers and Jets.

“The Jets run means we as a sports department get to shine as well with extra programming,” Livingston tells FishbowlNY. “Working with my producers, Joe Benigno, Damien Woody, Wesley Walker, and all the editors gives us a chance to give extra insight and bonus coverage on one of the biggest stories in New York City in recent years.”

Benigno, the midday WFAN host, and WCBS reporter Hazel Sanchez, join Livingston reporting live from Pittsburgh. The special includes WCBS sports anchor Sam Ryan with additional player interviews.

Woody, the Jets’ offensive lineman, will offer insights into the game.

Along with hosting duties, look for Livingston to have a hand in interviewing.

“I think we’ll be doing something special from a hotel lobby in Pittsburgh,” Livingston says.

The AFC Championship is Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on Channel 2.
