Capping off a week's worth of broadcasts from the city including hours of programming from the special CBS Super Bowl Park at Jackson Square, the network plans more than 9 hours of coverage on Super Bowl Sunday.

Here are some of the highlights and when the shows will be aired on WWL-TV Channel 4.

CBS News Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood – (8 a.m.) Segments will include a profile of Delhi, La., native Tim McGraw, a Bill Geist visit to Avery Island to profile the McIlhenny family and Tabasco, and a Wynton Marsalis “Ode to Gumbo,” for which he interviewed New Orleans' food writer, broadcaster and cooking school teacher Poppy Tooker.

“As much a cultural symbol of New Orleans as the bayou or jazz, gumbo is a mix of seafood and spices - and cultures and ethnicities - making it symbolic of the best of New Orleans,” says CBS in its press release.

Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer – (9:30 a.m.) – Bob Schieffer will interview NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.  The program will also feature CBS Sports hosts Jim Nantz, Phil Simms and Shannon Sharpe.
