Surprise Choice For SI Media Person Of The Year

Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated handed out his Media Awards for 2010 and his person of the year was an unusual choice to say the least.

Mike Pereira, the NFL’s former Vice President of Officiating, was selected as Deitsch’s person of the year for his role as NFL rules analyst for Fox Sports. Deitsch goes on to explain why he selected Pereira:

MTP Makes Way For Super-Sized Sunday “Today”

The Today show is super-sizing this Super Bowl Sunday and will air from 9-11amET/8-10amCT. Meet the Press with David Gregory will air live following “Today” at 11amET/10amCT.

Sunday’s “Today” show will feature weekday anchors Meredith Vieira, Al Roker and Ann Curry live from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, while Matt Lauer will broadcast live from the White House lawn. Later Sunday, Lauer interviews President Barack Obama live during NBC’s Super Bowl Pre-Game.

Roker gets to Florida first, with Thursday’s reports originating from Tampa’s historic Ybor City. Vieira arrives for Friday’s show; NBC’s Tiki Barber gets a VIP tour of the stadium from his twin brother, Tampa Bay Buccaneer Ronde Barber and for some apparent reason Weekend Today co-anchor Jenna Wolfe will be live for Saturday’s Today show from Universal Studios Orlando.
