(Penfield, NY) NFL icon John Madden joined WROC-TV (Rochester) Sports Anchor John Kucko two days before Super Bowl XXVI in Minneapolis. The Washington Redskins would defeat the Buffalo Bills that year at the Metrodome 37-24. Madden's videogame was only three years old at the time. And three years after this interview, FOX-TV would become a player in the NFL televising game as Madden would leave CBS and join FOX in calling NFC action for the network. FOX's entry into the tv sports realm would signify a seismic change for the NFL's television revenues and it changed the tv business forever, both nationally and locally. A number of longtime CBS affiliates switched their allegiance to FOX, just in order to maintain the broadcasting of NFL action on their air.
