Fox Broadcasting Has Sold Over 90% of Superbowl Ad Time

News Corp.'s (NWS) Fox Broadcasting has sold more than 90% of its Superbowl advertising time, almost five months ahead of the event.

The broadcaster is charging an average of about $3 million for a 30-second ad, Reuters reported without naming its sources.

The strong sales suggest that advertisers are still wiling to pay top dollar for the chance to reach an audience of 100 million viewers, even with a weak economy.

Super Bowl XLV will take place on Feb. 6 in Texas.

How can I as a black business owner get my product , advertized doing the supper bowl without the money need to place my product on the air with your company. Please help a black man get his product out to the 100 million people you will reach doing the best advertizement in the world. I feel this would be a good promotional tool for your company, and it will help get our product out to the masses of people. Thank you, and if your company is interested, please call Marvin Jones, President Zappy Paint Product, Inc. at 407-325-0895. God Bless.

If Zappy Paint whatever is ever going to be a success, the President of the company needs to spend more time ACTUALLY promoting and marketing than WISHING that there is some fricking crazy way to get free Super Bowl ads !!! ARE YOU KIDDING !!!!! BTW Why does it matter what ethnic group the President of Zappy whatever belongs to? Unless he thinks the world owes free ads to black people or something. This guy needs to get a job and forget about his failing product that has no qualified leadership !!

when will someone realize that the sb is only good up to half time(maybe). after that, they are showing their expensive ads to a bunch of drunks whose only interest in the game is in the bar's football pools.
