An estimated 160 million people will tune in on television and online, in addition to the 80,000-plus fans and media in attendance, for Super Bowl XLVIII. And this former campus tour guide and Phi Iota Chi sister will be right in the middle of it.
From Bruce Springsteen to Bon Jovi and WrestleMania to Kenny Chesney, Nicole Premuto Fountain ’03 has worked her fair share of big stages and massive audiences.
But none bigger than the one she will face this weekend.
“Commissioner (Roger) Goodell said it best at the NFL Draft … we’re on the clock,” says Fountain, senior manager of public relations and communications for MetLife Stadium, host of Super Bowl XLVIII. “The world will be watching. It’s going to be historic.”
Fountain is right. It’s a stage – an opportunity – few marketing and communications professionals experience.
“We’re very excited, not nervous at all,” says Fountain. “We do this every week. We realize we’re going to have a much bigger audience, but that’s just more motivation for us.”
