First-Time-Ever Event Allows AT&T's Wireless Subscribers to Text Their Votes Through April 30

NEW YORK, NY � April 20, 2007 � "SNL" presents its "Best of 2006/07" special episode, featuring the memorable moments of the past season on May 5 (11:30pm � 1:00 am, ET).

Additionally, in an unprecedented partnership, NBC, Broadway Video and AT&T (NASDAQ: T) are allowing fans -- for the first time ever -- to vote for the season's best "SNL Digital Short" and be entered in a sweepstakes to earn a trip to New York to see the late-night series' Season Finale on May 19. "We are excited to now allow our wireless customers to impact the show by voting for their favorite moments via their wireless handset, "said John Burbank, vice president of marketing, AT&T's wireless unit." Bringing an interactive element to one of the legendary comedic brands like 'Saturday Night Live' allows our customers to feel like they are making history.
