Sportscaster

Odds of Getting In

We hate to break it to you, but the odds are small and getting smaller. There's understandably a ton of competition for this one, and many seasoned sportscasters who've been doing this for thirty years are still hanging in there. It's tough to replace someone when they just won't leave.

The only place opportunities are increasing is in online media. It gives sportscasters the opportunity to centralize their thoughts in one blogcation. This isn't for everyone; if you can't handle one of your broadcasts getting 7,000 "dislikes," or reading comments that contain a long string of angry words about your mother, then maybe you should just stick to providing color commentary to your friends at the sports bar.
