The Practice and Procedures of Broadcasting for the Play-by-play Sports Announcer

Description: The problem is twofold. There have been short chapters on sports announcing included in most broadcasting textbooks. These chapters have given a limited, cursory 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.
