CANDACE’s Answer

It depends if you want to do get into TV broadcasting or Radio broadcasting. You can take audio recording and production classes for your path in radio. For TV, you would want to take visual production classes. Depending on any experience you may or may not have, maybe even a speaking class to develop your voice (for both roles) and a writing course. I took both when I attended classes ( I did radio and TV production) and it was very helpful

Sean’s Answer

Hi Jalia!

I remember when I was in high school I had the same question. From what I understand, Syracuse University has one of the top programs in the country that will prepare you for this kind of career path. Once you get to college, I would suggest networking as much as possible, and do internships in the industry.

Hi Jalia,

There are a number of routes you can take as far as education that can set you up for a future in sports broadcasting. There are a number of schools across the US that offer bachelor's degrees in Sports Communication. You can also explore Radio, TV and Film. I would also definitely recommend pursuing internships during the school year or summer. Depending on the school that you attend, there could be plenty of opportunities as an intern within production for all sporting events. Often times, these can lead to potential jobs after graduation.

Christopher’s Answer

I wanted to do the exact same thing. It depends on your location, but look at schools that sports broadcasters graduated from and the programs they took. That would be a great place to start.

I would also focus beyond school. Get involved with doing podcasts, maybe anything you can do with your local sports teams.

Hope this helps.

John’s Answer

From personal experience, the University of South Carolina has a great Sports & Entertainment Management program. There our many opportunities for hands on experiences such as getting to work at The Masters. There is also the additional benefit for out of state students to get in state tuition if their state schools do not offer the major through the Academic Common Market.

Jimmy’s Answer

Hi Jalia,

I'd say Journalism is the best route. There is also clubs and programs that organizations will offer. This is usually a good way to get familiarized with the program and how to speak with peers about the career path.

Taking courses in communications can help you in a variety of ways. Journalism courses will teach you how to be unbiased toward the teams that you cover as well as how to conduct interviews. Public speaking courses will help you find your voice as an announcer. Television courses can help you overcome any issues that you have about speaking on camera.

Hope this helps!
