  • The evolution of sportscasting has taken place over many years and has given sports fans everywhere a leisurely and entertaining experience. It has also opened up more jobs and given more opportunities to those who wish to become a sportscaster.
  • I have loved sports all my life and have been watching them for as long as I can remember. Without sports broadcasts I would not be able to enjoy sports as much as I do now.(images.google.com)
  • Sports broadcasts provide people with entertainment and allow them to follow their favorite teams and players on a daily basis. Without them people would not be as educated about sports and would not be able to enjoy them on a regular basis.(images.google.com)
  • The first televised game was in 1939 and was a college baseball game between Princeton and Columbia. It was covered by only one camera down the third base line. NBC’s Gillette Cavalcade of Sports was the first network sports broadcast in 1944 and featured Willie Pep vs. Chalky White in a boxing Featherweight Championship bout.Since very few people had television sets sports were used to help market them and boost their demand. The only events that were shown on network television were those that had great importance because the cameras were so heavy and hard to get around. Sports became fixture for prime-time television in the late 1940’s. (www.museum.tv) (images.google.com)
  • In the 1950’s many networks stopped showing sports in primetime due to other genres becoming big and also a growing woman audience. Sports were instead shown on weekends and were still very profitable and successful. NBC’s Gillette Cavalcade of Sports continued to stay on the air and lasted for about 20 years but came to an end due to it becoming increasingly difficult for single advertises to sponsor sporting events because it became more expensive. (www.museum.tv) (images.google.com)
  • In the mid 1960’s the number of hours that sports were on network television increased due to a growing audience and more sponsors. The amount of money being paid to televise sports continued to rise. Examples of this would be in 1970 networks paid $50 million to broadcast the NFL, $2 million for the NBA and $18 million for MLB. In 1985 it rose to $450 million, $45 million and $160 million this was do to a growing interest in sports. This caused cable channels to start showing sports as well when they first came out. (www.museum.tv)
  • ABC’s Wide world of sports premiered in the summer of 1961 as the first year round weekly sports series. The show featured three uncommon sporting events for television per show and was shown on Saturday afternoons. It was hosted by the late Jim McKay. The show soon became an unexpected hit after being thought of as a fill in for the summer. (www.images.google.com)(www.enotes.com)
  • The show would also help showcase ABC sports and lead to further successes such as the landing of Monday Night Football on ABC. It’s success lead to other networks creating similar type shows such as CBS's Sports Spectacular and NBC's Sportsworld. The show was cancelled in 1998 due to the rise of ESPN. (www.tvtropes.org) (images.google.com)
  • ESPN was founded in 1978 by Bill Rasmussen as Entertainment Sports Programming Network. In 1980 it started programming 24 hours a day and seven days a week after being part time in 1979. In 1984 ABC, Inc. bought ESPN which provided a foundation for its future growth. This led to major broadcasting contracts from the NHL(1985), the NFL(1987), and MLB(1989). A quote that I got from an article was “if a sport wasn’t covered by ESPN, it didn’t exist”. This quote explains how ESPN covers anything sports and is a sports empire. (Rein, Irving; Kotler, Philip; Shields, Ben. "The Future of Sports Media." Futurist 1(2007):40. eLibrary. Web. 15 Mar. 2010.) (images.google.com)(www.fundinguniverse.com)(images.google.com)
  • ESPN started expanding overseas late in the 80’s with the launching of ESPN International which brought ESPN networks to other countries. In 1991 ESPN Radio launched which broadcasts talk shows and major sporting events. In 1993 ESPN released a second network ESPN2 which carried games and other shows that were considered secondary to those on ESPN. Also in 1993 ESPN launched a website called ESPNet.com which would give sports fans the latest news, scores and also highlights of games. In 1996 ESPNEWS was released giving ESPN yet another channel. However, unlike the other two it does not air games only highlights and news. (www.fundinguniverse.com)
  • In 1995 the Walt Disney Company acquired Capital Cities/ABC which gave them 80% interest in ESPN and control of its operations. In 1996 ESPN and ABC Sports combined under a single operating unit. In 1998 ESPN reached long term deals to carry NFL and NHL games. ABC would continue to carry Monday Night Football and ESPN had Sunday Night Football and ABC would have exclusive rights to nationally televised hockey games and ESPN for national cable televised games. In 1999 ESPN had an agreement with MLB to carry 108 games per season until 2005 and broadcast games live on ESPN Radio. (www.fundinguniverse.com) (images.google.com)
  • In 2003 ESPN started broadcasting games in High Definition which enables the viewer to see a wider and clearer view of the game with better sound quality. Now nearly every game is broadcasted in HD including all professional games and high level college games. In 2005 ESPN launched yet another channel ESPNU which showcased only college sports. ESPN still broadcasts college games on its other networks however that channel goes more in depth. In 2009 ESPN opened a Sportscenter studio in Los Angeles where they also broadcast from other than Bristol, Connecticut. On June 11, 2010 ESPN will launch ESPN 3D which will broadcast 85 events in the first year. (www.answers.com) (images.google.com)
  • Today nearly every sport is broadcasted in high definition which gives a clearer and wider view of the event and also features sharper sound quality. It almost makes you feel as if you are at the game and not watching it on television. The first time sports were broadcasted in HD was in 2003 and ever since it is becoming harder and harder to watch sports that are not shown in HD. (www.ezinearticles.com) (www.images.google.com)
  • The Philadelphia area shows local sports on Comcast Sportsnet which is a cable channel. Comcast Sportsnet broadcasts local professional and college games except for the Eagles due to footballs network television contracts. They also have talk shows such as Daily News Live and highlight shows such as Sportsnite. Several other regions use Comcast Sportsnet to televise their sports while other areas use Fox Sports Net which consists of similar programming. Also news stations show highlights and have reports during their telecasts. (www.csnphilly.com) (images.google.com)
  • Today each major sport has its own channel. The MLB Network launched in 2009, NHL Network launched in 2007, NBA TV launched in 1999, and NFL Network launched in 2003. Each show games and highlights and have shows that are exclusive to that sport. http://mlb.mlb.com/network/about/)(www.nfl.com/history/chronology/2001-)(http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/sports/s_531648.html)http://www.google.com/search?q=nba+tv+history&hl=en&safe=active&client=firefox-a&hs=QHB&sa=G&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&tbs=tl:1&tbo=u&ei=pa-P(images.google.com)
  • Today each sport has contracts with the different networks that air their games. Most sporting events are shown on local cable tv. Also sports cable channels carry games almost every night. These are usually the big games of the night. The bigger games and sporting events are shown on network tv and draw much larger audiences. These mainly include game of the week which is on every weekend or playoff games with the exception of the NFL whose games air on network tv every Sunday no matter what the importance is with the exception of Monday Night Football which airs on ESPN on Monday nights. (www.museum.tv) (images.google.com)
  • There are many other sports channels that exist on Comcast, Verizon, or satellite. These include NFL RedZone which only airs during Sunday football games, CBS College Sports which is all college, Big Ten Network which shows all Big Ten games, Versus which shows hockey, outdoor sports, racing, and some college football or basketball, the Golf Channel which is all about golf, and the Tennis Channel which is all about tennis. There are also specific packages for each sport that can be purchased and show every game from that sport. (www.comcast.com) (images.google.com)
  • To become a broadcaster in any field one must major in communications in college. These communications courses will deal with a variety of different topics including theories of communication, group communication, information theory, intrapersonal communication, interpersonal communication, marketing, organizational communication, propaganda, public affairs, public relations, speech communications, and telecommunications. Being a communications major will help a person become a better speaker and make it easier for them to talk in front of a large audience or camera. (images.google.com)(http://www.uncwil.edu/stuaff/career/majors/communication.htm)
  • Graduating with a communications major will give a person more opportunities in broadcasting. This gives them the chance to choose to cover sports. They will start out in training programs and learn how to be good broadcasters. When they are done they will be ready to become sportscasters and work actual games. (http://www.americansportscastersonline.com/enbergsportscasting.html) (images.google.com)
  • Some of the top colleges in the United States for communications majors include, Penn State University,Syracuse University,University of Texas,University of Michigan,University of North Carolina, andFlorida State University.(http://www.ehow.com/list_5798786_top-colleges-communication-majors.html) (images.google.com)
  • People who wish to become sportscasters may also major in journalism. Through this major they will learn how to write, report, and edit articles for publication or broadcast. (http://www.collegeboard.com/csearch/majors_careers/profiles/majors/09.0401.html)(images.google.com)
  • Some of the top schools for journalism include Ball State University,Indiana University, theUniversity of Florida, the University of Maryland, theUniversity of Missouri, and the University of North Carolina.(http://www.squidoo.com/bestjschools)(images.google.com)
  • Sportscasters need to be enthusiastic fans to make the game more entertaining for the people watching. Sportscasters also must be able to write, inform, entertain, and educate. You must be able to write because that means you are probably a good speaker. You must be able to inform because that is your job. You are informing people of what is going on. You must be able to entertain because it would make the audience more interested. You must be able to educate because you need to be able to know what you are talking about. You also need to practice whether at home watching a game or at a little league game or even an actual game. By starting with a lesser job you will have a smaller and less critical audience to hear you if you make mistakes. You need to learn from your mistakes so you never make them again. By listening to other sportscasters you will not only learn more about the game but what you should not do and what makes a good call. (http://www.americansportscastersonline.com/enbergsportscasting.html)(images.google.com)
  • Some of the jobs in sportscasting are play by play commentator, color commentators, reporters, show hosts for radio stations or television, anchors, and analysts. These people can work for large or small markets, nationally, locally, or in major of minor leagues and college ore even high school. (http://www.staatalent.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=2)(images.google.com)
  • Play by play commentators call every play of the game. They basically just tell the audience what they see so the fans can know exactly what is going on. (images.google.com)
  • Color commentators call the game alongside the play by play commentator. They add stats and analyze the plays that have already happened. They often times can become excitable and make the game more fun. (images.google.com)
  • Reporters often work from the sideline and add extras that the audience does not get to see by just watching the game. They give injury updates and listen into the coaches and players that are on the sidelines and report what they were saying. Sometimes, mainly for NBA and NFL games, they interview the coaches or players at halftime. (images.google.com)
  • Television or radio show hosts basically just give their opinions on the big topics that are going on in sports that day. They may also have guest players, coaches, or analysts who they will interview and ask for their opinions on certain stories. (images.google.com)
  • Television anchors call highlights and report the major stories of the day to the audience. They may also conduct interviews with players or even reporters to showcase a story in a bigger way. (images.google.com)
  • Analysts are experts at the particular sport in which they cover and they talk about games that have happened and why they went the way they did and also make predictions for future events based on how the styles of play match up. (images.google.com)
  • These are some famous broadcasters and also some of my favorites like Harry Kalas, Dick Vitale, Al Michaels, and Brent Musburger. Pat Summerall, Howard Cosell, Keith Jackson, John Madden, Al Michaels, and Brent Musburger are or were football announcers. Dick Enberg, Dick Vitale, and Marv Albert are basketball announcers. Jim McKay did a variety of sports and the rest are baseball announcers. Chris Berman also announces some games and is mostly known for his work for ESPN as an NFL analyst. (images.google.com)
  • These are some famous quotes that have come from sportscasters and ABC’s Wide World of Sports which focused a lot of it’s show on “The thrill of victory and agony of defeat”. “Do you believe in miracles? Yes!”, was said by Al Michaels after the United States men hockey team defeated the Soviet Union during the 1980 olympics. Harry Kalas’ quote “Outta here”, was said by him when a player hit a home run. It is often his most imitated quote. The other quotes are just ones that are said by the commentator at any moment.(http://www.the-top-tens.com/lists/most-famous-sportscaster-quotes.asp) (images.google.com)
  • For my application I created my own Sportscenter. I took clips of highlights from the internet and recorded my voice over them. So I basically called the highlights like a Sportscenter anchor would. (images.google.com)
  • For my class activity I have a word search that includes some words that came from my presentation on sportscasting(images.google.com)
  • Sports broadcasts have evolved from their original roots over 70 years ago and will continue to evolve as the years go on. Over the years more and more people have become sportscasters and therefore colleges are offering more opportunities to become a broadcaster of any sort.(images.google.com)

  • 40. Conclusion
    Sports broadcasts have evolved from their original roots over 70 years ago and will continue to evolve as the years go on. Over the years more and more people have become sportscasters and therefore colleges are offering more opportunities to become a broadcaster of any sort.
