Throughout the United States there is an increasing
need for talented, well-prepared sports reporters and play-
by-play announcers in the radio and television industry.
This Investigation is concerned with the process of preparing
these future sports reporters. The need exists for instruc-
tional guide lines in textbook form for those desiring to
become play-by-play sportscasters.
The problem is twofold. There have been short ohapters
on sports announcing included in most broadcasting textbooks.
These ohapters have given a limited, oursory explanation of
the preparation necessary for aspiring sportscasters.
Secondly, most authors have approached the field from the
viewpoint of the researcher. This investigation approaches
the problem from the viewpoint of a sports announcer who
has started in small market radio and worked his way through
to a responsible position in a major broadcasting area.
The investigation breaks the problem down into three
1. Individual practice procedure required to
learn sports announcing.
Z. Preparation for a sports broadcast.
3. Announcing techniques used in various sports.
Here’s what’s next.
