Broadcast presenters work in the television and radio industry. Their role is to inform and entertain the audience.
A day in the life of a sports broadcaster
There isn’t a typical day to be honest. You can be presenting on air one day or out interviewing guests another day. Some days I’ll just be writing match reports in the office. You might also do some research or go to a game. It’s a cliché but no 2 days are exactly the same.
|1.||You get to meet your sporting heroes|
|2.||The variety of each day is fantastic|
|3.||Watching sport at home and telling your other half you have to watch it for work. Then she can’t complain!|
|3 not so great things about being a sports broadcaster|
|1.||Dealing with certain people involved in sporting organisations is difficult|
|2.||A lot of this work is on the weekend so it does mean you don’t spend as much time with your family|
|3.||Realising that you cannot please everyone as a presenter and that some people will hate you is difficult to accept sometimes|
|Study what you enjoy and what you are good at. It demonstrates that you have a wide range of knowledge in fields other than sport and media. This can help you when you become a sports broadcaster.|
|3 opportunities and experiences you recommend people gain?|
|1.||Gain plenty of work experience. Do anything and work anywhere in the media industry|
|2.||Be patient. It took me 2 years of writing letters before I got my first work experience. You also need a lot of luck|
|3.||Be nice. You would be astonished how being polite and not being rude to people can get you a long way|
The range in salary is huge. It would start around £15,000 but if reports are to be believed you could get over a million for being a big name TV football presenter.
