Playing EXCLUSIVE: Frank Gifford's Daughter Cassidy Remembers Her Late Dad With Super Bowl 50 Analysts

Frank and Kathie Lee Gifford's daughter, Cassidy, has a close family connection with the Super Bowl, and she sat down with some of her dad's former cohorts who will be broadcasting this year's big game on CBS.

Cassidy's late father, Frank, was an NFL Hall of Famer and part of the TV broadcast team in the first Super Bowl, and her mother, Kathie Lee, sang the National Anthem at Super Bowl XXIX in 1995, making the 22-year-old actress practically a Super Bowl veteran! The CBS Sports team sat down with Cassidy, who joins the ET team for non-stop Super Bowl coverage, to remember the legendary football talent.

"Your dad was a great man," Simms told Cassidy in ET's sit-down interview. "I loved him. Saw him all the time, but you don't look like him."

"This great league that we have been a part of for many years was built on the back of people like your dad," analyst Boomer Esiason added.

Co-hosting ET's Super Bowl coverage alongside Cassidy will be Kevin Frazier, and CBS Sports chairman and The NFL on CBS executive producer Sean McManus couldn't have been happier with the actress' involvement. Ironically, McManus is the son of legendary sports journalist Jim McKay, who worked with Frank for decades.

"There's something very serendipitous about this," McManus said.
