Learning how to become a sportscaster – whether it’s as a sports talk show host, play-by-play announcer, update anchor, or sideline reporter, requires far more than a passion for sports and a good voice.
You’ll need much more than luck and an intimate knowledge of the local teams and players in order to succeed.
You require a well thought out and proven strategy (plan) for breaking into the sports broadcasting industry. A proven strategy that enables you to acquire the two most important ingredients you’ll need when learning how to become a sportscaster, which are:
- Sports Broadcasting-specific skills required to perform the duties of the job, and
- Influential industry contacts. “It’s not just WHAT you know, but WHO you know – and who knows you” is highly relevant in this business.
