Sean McManus is still on cloud 9 this morning.
McManus, who is president of CBS News and Sports, also has the distinction of being the executive producer of the most-watched television program in history. McManus was EP of CBS’s coverage of Super Bowl XLIV.
In a note to the CBS Sports staff, obtained by TVNewser, McManus writes, “From noon right through the Post Game Show, our programming was filled with memorable and compelling images that will live on forever. And how cool is it to be able to say that we all worked on the most-watched program in television history!”
He also gave a shout out to the team at the “Early Show” for their South Beach broadcasts last week. “You had an ambitious plan going in, but you all delivered when it really mattered,” wrote McManus in a separate note. He’s also looking forward to CBS’s next Super Bowl telecast in New Orleans in 2013.
