Fox Sports broadcaster Joe Buck and his fiancée, NFL Network reporter Michelle Beisner, may be the “First Couple” of Super Bowl XLVIII.
Both Buck and Beisner will have a prominent role in the media’s coverage of this Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. Buck, 44, will serve as the play-by-play announcer for Fox’s broadcast of the spectacle, while Beisner, 37, has been a key figure in the NFL Network’s ongoing coverage of the big game.
Beisner has maintained an active presence on Twitter throughout Super Bowl XLVIII’s “Media Week.” On early Wednesday morning, the former Denver Broncos cheerleader posted a photo of herself and Buck just after his appearance at a taping of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”
“Watch [Late Night with Jimmy Fallon] TONIGHT! [Joe Buck] is a guest, and was BRILLIANT!!!” Beisner tweeted.

Ironically, this year’s Super Bowl will mark an anniversary of sorts for Buck and Beisner. According to The Big Lead, the pair met for the first time at last year’s game and started dating soon afterwards.
Buck confirmed to The Big Lead last August that he and Beisner were engaged. A source close to the situation revealed that Beisner would be moving to Buck’s hometown of St. Louis, but could not provide further information on their relationship. The news of the couple’s engagement came just days after Beisner confirmed that she and Buck had been dating for “awhile.”
For the last seven years, Beisner has worked a reporter and host for the NFL Network, and makes frequent appearances on its daily morning show, “NFL AM.” Before that, she spent six years as a Broncos cheerleader, four of which were spent as the group’s captain. Beisner has also worked for ESPN and Fox Sports.
