I attended the NBCUniversal Television Critics Association (TCA)
Press Conference announcing surprises on returning programs this season and new programming to premiere next season. In a
large hall in The Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, California journalists gathered and were shown clips of some of the

premiered on NBC. "We have the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo," added Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment's
Chairman. In 2024 ‘The New World' (a nature series)...we believe NBC programs...bring about change."

(The Blacklist"); "The Young Rock," a sitcom based on the childhood life of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson,
and "That's My Jam" with Jimmy Fallon hosting, a celebrity game show. "We pitched it to NBC
and at the end all jaws dropped and hands raised and here we are (11 episodes)," said Dwayne about his show "The
Young Rock." "You're going to find young Rock creating havoc in Hawaii...we are evicted off the island. Move to
Nashville where I'm still creating havoc. Wrestling...at $40 a match helped shape me." Everybody's

(Miami) - The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration combines faith and football as the only official Super Bowl multicultural
Gospel sanctioned event. The annual celebration brings together Grammy Award winning mainstream and Christian artists for
an evening dedicated to uplift all. Returning to Atlanta for its 21st anniversary, the concert will be taped in front of a
live audience on Thursday, January 30, 2020 in Miami during Super Bowl LIII week. National radio and tv personality Rickey
Smiley is set to co-host the show, which will feature performances by Commissioned, Yolanda Adams, Donnie McClurkin, Travis
Greene and the NFL Players Choir and more.
Founder of the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration Melanie Few (pictured) is the President of Results Marketing and Media. She is
the Founder and Executive Producer of the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration and she is a media maven. She is the only woman with
an NFL sanctioned event. She is a bold, brilliant visionary that has broken all barriers by bringing gospel to the NFL marketing
arena like no other individual in the world. Before starting the Gospel event, Few had attended a number of Super Bowls as
a fan with friends and professional acquaintances. It dawned on her that of the many events held leading up to the big game,
not one of them was faith-based. This was something that she believed needed to change. She pitched the idea of a nonprofit
Super Bowl week gospel concert for seven years before she received support from the NFL.
