CBS AND NFL REACH AGREEMENT ON TWO-YEAR EXTENSION OF BROADCAST RIGHTS TO THE AMERICAN FOOTBALL CONFERENCE THROUGH 2013-14 SEASON

NEW DEAL INCLUDES CBS TELEVISION NETWORK TO BROADCAST SUPER BOWL XLVII IN FIRST YEAR

NEW YORK, May 19, 2009 - The National Football League announced today that CBS has been awarded a rights extension to broadcast the American Football Conference (AFC). The two-year extension agreement runs through the 2013-14 season and includes CBS broadcasting Super Bowl XLVII in the first year of the new agreement.

The CBS television negotiations were led by Leslie Moonves, President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS Corporation, and Sean McManus, President, CBS News and Sports.

"This agreement significantly strengthens what is already a great partnership between CBS and the NFL, and continues to add to CBS Sports' reputation as the undisputed industry leader in sports television with top franchises in all of television," said Moonves. "I would like to thank all the great people at CBS Sports and at the NFL for making this important deal happen."

Thirteen of CBS's 14 Owned stations are in NFL markets, including New York, San Francisco/Oakland, Boston, Miami, Denver, Pittsburgh and Baltimore, which are all AFC markets.

"We are extremely pleased to extend this agreement as well as our successful partnership with the NFL, which continues to prove that NFL football is the premier property in all of sports and the number one-rated franchise in all of sports television," said McManus.

CBS Sports, which first began televising NFL regular-season games in 1956 and this season mark its 50th season, had broadcast rights to the National Football Conference package from 1970 through 1993. The Network began televising American Football Conference games in 1998.

CBS Television is comprised of the CBS Television Network - with more than 200 owned and affiliated stations reaching virtually every television home in the United States; the Network's programming arms CBS Entertainment, CBS News and CBS Sports; and CBS Enterprises, a global leader in distribution.
