YouTube to air its own Super Bowl halftime show

The information comes from Bloomberg which recently spoke to Google’s managing director of brand solutions Suzie Reider. The halftime show will be hosted by Epic Meal Time‘s Harley Morenstein, and will include other individuals who have found fame on YouTube.

YouTube is banking on the large group of followers these stars have on the service, the combined total of which surpasses 60 million subscribers.
