Kevin Harlan and his daughter, Olivia Harlan Dekker, are set to make history.
They will become the first ever father-and-daughter duo to call and cover a Super Bowl when they do so during Super Bowl 58.
“You think of it like the accolades of your career that will end up meaning anything, when all of this is said and done and something you’ll tell grandchildren about and that they’ll tell grandchildren about, and that’s really something to be proud of generationally,” Harlan Dekker said. “No one will care about the midseason games you work or how many seasons you even work. But everyone will remember this in our family. So, it means the world to me and to make history doing it. I like to think that there’s some little girl out there that is going to catch wind of this story in some way, and just think: ‘I never thought of that.’”
Harlan Dekker currently works for Sky Sports and Westwood One Radio after previously covering the NFL and NBA for ESPN, Fox Sports, and CBS.
Her father, Kevin Harlan, just completed his 39th season as an NFL play-by-play broadcaster. He will be calling Super Bowl 58 between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers on Westwood One Radio for the 14th consecutive year.
