There is nothing like the emotions athletes feel in victory and defeat. Sports coverage provides a similar rush for the media professionals who witness the action and make it real for their audiences. In this volume, readers learn about the exciting careers of sportswriters, announcers, and the dedicated professionals who work away from the public eye, outlining the skills and preparation that these jobs require. Print and broadcast employers need workers talented and trained in writing and speaking, electronics, art, photography and personal communications. Sidebars profile sports journalists, photographers, and commentators such as ESPN's Holly Rowe.
