You'll want at least a degree in broadcasting or journalism, but you'll also need to put in your time interning at smaller stations or news organizations to build up some cred. You'll also obviously have to demonstrate an expert knowledge of just about everything having to do with a ball, puck or racket. When starting out, it's important that you specialize—even "own"—a particular sport. You want to become known as "the man" when it comes to soccer. Or when it comes to a sport that people in this country watch. Yeah, that would be better.
