With the thrill of the game and the excitement of documenting captivating moments for sports history, sports broadcasting is one of the most desired jobs among sports and journalism professionals. Designed to provide students with the skills to be successful in their careers, Sports Broadcasting With HKPropel Access is a comprehensive look at the field, with coverage of all aspects of the job that an entry-level sports broadcaster will need to know about.

The text begins with the history and background of the sports broadcasting industry. Students will next learn about modern topics that are critical in the business today, with an overview of the various outlets, including television, radio, streaming, and podcasting. They will then dive into lessons on the skills every sportscaster needs for success, including conducting in-person and remote interviews of coaches and players, writing for broadcast versus writing for other channels such as web and mobile devices, shooting games or events, producing a sportscast, and editing video for broadcast.

The career demands of both television and radio broadcasting are explored, and the increasing popularity of podcasting and streaming is examined. Students will journey through the steps involved in preparing for a live sports production, including play-by-play for radio and television, color commentary, and sideline reporting. A look into the different types of social media and their impact on sports broadcasting is followed by tips and advice on creating an effective social media presence and best practices for using social media as a sports broadcaster. The final chapters prepare students to pursue a career in sports broadcasting—offering practical advice on preparing resumes, portfolios, and job searching—and discuss issues and ethics relevant to modern-day sports broadcasting.

Throughout the text, Major Moments sidebars discuss defining moments in the history of sports broadcasting and their impact on the field today, while Pro Advice sidebars feature interviews with sports broadcasting professionals and offer career tips and practical advice.

Related online learning aids and activities delivered through HKPropel further the learning experience. These include key term flash cards and downloadable worksheets. Video lessons and audio clips demonstrate skills covered in the text, such as setting up for an interview, capturing footage with a cell phone camera, and preparing for a broadcast. Student activities related to the video can be assigned and tracked by instructors through HKPropel, while writing prompts and a video editing assignment provide valuable hands-on experience in tasks students will need to be successful in their careers.

With Sports Broadcasting, students will gain the knowledge and practical skills they need to be a well-rounded broadcaster in any segment of the field.

Kevin Hull, PhD, is an associate professor of journalism and the lead instructor of the sports media initiative at the University of South Carolina. Before entering academia, Hull was a television sports broadcaster for an NBC affiliate in North Carolina for about seven years. In this role, he anchored and reported on local sports while also serving as photographer, editor, and producer for his own stories. His work has sent him to the Super Bowl, NCAA Tournaments, and many additional amateur and professional sporting events. Hull won several statewide awards for Best Sports Feature from the Radio and Television News Directors Association of the Carolinas, and his department’s sportscasts were the most watched in the market.

As a researcher, Hull focuses primarily on local sports broadcasters throughout the United States. He has studied the challenges new sports broadcasters face, the issues surrounding race and gender in the profession, and how universities are preparing students to enter the field of sportscasting. His published studies have discussed sports media education, how sportscasters are using social media, and sports media internships.
