The Kansas City Chiefs won their second straight Super Bowl on Sunday night thanks to a Mecole Hardman touchdown catch in overtime. Though Jim Nantz and Tony Romo were calling the television broadcast for CBS, Kevin Harlan provided an epic call of his own via a radio broadcast.
Kevin Harlan began his football broadcasting career as the voice of the Chiefs and was the play-by-play announcer for Westwood One Sports Radio’s Super Bowl broadcast on Sunday. After the San Francisco 49ers scored first to begin overtime in the 2024 Super Bowl, Harlan was on the call for the Chiefs’ ensuing drive, including the Super Bowl-winning touchdown pass to Hardman.
“It’s caught! Hardman caught the ball!” Harlan said on the call. “The Chiefs have won! The Chiefs have won!”
Travis Kelce played a key role in the team’s late heroics, bringing drama to the game with a blowup with coach Andy Reid before scoring a crucial touchdown in overtime.
