SMG’s one-on-one, six month training program is where sports broadcasting careers begin
Have you wondered how sports broadcasting careers begin, but never understand how it was best accomplished?
Turning your dream into reality is very possible, but take it from those who know- you’ll need more than luck.
And you’ll also need more than just skills for sports broadcasting. And gone are the days when a snazzy demo tape and resume alone would open doors for you.
In today’s world of sports broadcasting, you need passion, a strong work ethic, dedication, and the most difficult of all ingredients to get – insider access and contacts.
Biggest Challenge To Becoming A Sports Broadcaster?
The biggest challenge everyone faces when sports broadcasting careers begin is how to make industry contacts. Just having sports broadcasting skills with no insider contacts, or insider contacts with no sports broadcasting skills, will do you little good.
You need both in order to stand a fighting chance of ever realizing your dream of becoming a successful sports broadcaster.
It should be obvious why acquiring announcing skills are a must. You’re in the communications business, and proper communication skills are a large part of the job requirements. Not so obvious to some, however, is the importance of establishing relationships with influential industry contacts as soon as possible.
The reason is simple. Sports broadcasting is a competitive business. After all, who WOULDN’T want to get paid to talk sports every day, call play-by-play of the Super Bowl, World Series, announce courtside from the NBA finals, or just call sporting events for local teams?
Some sportscasting jobs may literally have hundreds of applicants vying for one prized position. Many other sportscasting jobs never open up because they are filled from within before being posted.
Simply by taking SMG’s six month “Ultra-Insider” training program – you’ll already be within the radio station, or training with a team’s play-by-play announcer, when jobs open up.
Think about it. One positive recommendation to management about your sports broadcasting skills – from a trusted employee who is personally training you – is an advantage that few other candidates will enjoy when any sports broadcasting job becomes available.
Can you now see why having insider contacts is every bit as important as having solid broadcasting skills?
