Fox Building Giant South Beach Set From Where They Will Broadcast Up To 14 Hours Daily In The 10 Days Leading To The Super Bowl

Miami is about to get lots of media exposure, thanks to the Super Bowl.

Multiple networks will be broadcasting live from here beginning next week, but the biggest set is being built by Fox, which has broadcast rights to the game.

Fox started building its set in Lummus Park on Ocean Drive in South Beach on January 6, according to a Miami Beach City Manager memo.

A site plan shows there will be a demo football field, small Ferris wheel, and a Fox News studio.

The network will begin broadcasting live on January 24 and continue through February 2, or around 10 days.

Live broadcasts will run for 12-14 hours a day. Some of the shows will include Fox and Friends, NFL Films Presents, WWE Backstage, Fox Nation, Race Hub, America’s Newsroom, Super Bowl Pre Game and Super Bowl Opening Night.

ESPN and Univision are among the other broadcasters that will set up shop in Lummus Park. In total, around $10 million worth of media exposure for Ocean Drive is expected.

During the last Miami Super Bowl in 2010, locals were disappointed in how little coverage the network gave to the city, particularly during the game itself, when there were no live shots of the city (instead, the network aired video of crowds in New Orleans cheering on the Saints). Fox appears to be taking the opposite approach this time.

Meanwhile the ‘iconic’ ferris wheel construction at Bayside sits idle because of Psycho Joe Comemierda Toyota Corollo who has made sure to slow walk the permitting and paperwork because they chose Bayside over putting it IN the park so Joe can’t suckle monies from it.

Happy to see all the money that will be pouring into Miami and South Florida from the 2020 Suprrbowl.
Think how much more money would have stayed in Miami had that destination Resorts World Miami was operational with a casino.

WSVN does everything in their power to disassociate themselves from Fox, especially during the day. Wise decision on their part.

I will put money on this: The news media, especially Faux news will not let us forget the cocaine cowboys, the murder rates and how Miami has grown with all “foreigners” etc. All the while giving us that phony pat on the back. Lets hope the city does everything including cleaning the street and sidewalks in Downtown and Brickell and be ready to dispell the crap from the media. Just notice where the studios are set up. Not in downtown as they might be forced to show the world our beautiful city and skyline. Instead it’s South Beach.

As usual the only thing Miami has to show is a few palm trees from a ‘South Beach’ location. So tired and boring. These media types are just like some politicians…live in a bubble being driven by the same tired stereotypes and expectations from 20 to 30yrs prior. If Miami is a real city try setting up shop in a different area from time to time. If you come back 50yrs from now it will be the same sh*t…out of town media is about to setup on ‘Ocean Drive in South Beach’…yaaawwnn.
