NEW ORLEANS - When it comes to Super Bowl Sunday, there's a certain media frenzy that leads up to the big game.

Reporters from around the globe are set up at "Radio Row" in Hall H of the Morial Convention Center.

People across the world are hearing reports from New Orleans, not only about the game, but also about the city itself. Stories about Hurricane Katrina recovery, the restaurants, the fun to be had and more are circulating in the media.

"Eating and drinking, which you can do anywhere, but you do it the best in New Orleans," said Matt Jackson of 790 AM in Houston. "It's actually surprising to me that it has been 11 years since New Orleans hosted the Super Bowl."

Jackson believes New Orleans will become a regular in the Super Bowl host city rotation because "everybody loves a good party and that's what New Orleans does best."

City officials are attempting to bring the big game back to the city in 2018.
