SportsCenter Analysis

SportsCenter is a production of ESPN on cable telev*****ion. It is a mixture of scores, g*****me highlights, commentary, interviews and human interest feature stories. All ***** the people who are part of the ***** broadcast team are, of course, intelligent, well-spoken, ***** attractive.

A lady by the name ***** Dana Jacobson was one of the primary anchors doing two of the three shows. She worked with one man *****d Mike Greenberg and another ***** the name of Dave Revasine. There were other females involved in the broadcasting, mostly as interviewers who also did a sm*****ll amount of ***** related to what ever interview they did. ***** is, besides the gender mix, ***** an ethnic mix that is actually more diverse for women than men. There are Caucasian, African-American and Hispanic *****s represented by the women and Caucasian ***** African-American by ***** men. The gender ratio is approximately 3:1 males to females.

The story went on to tell ***** some kind of physical disability that hit him that he is now fighting back *****.

T***** single most prevalent programming is commercials. Of total ***** or three hours ***** ********** minutes, 64-68 minutes—it is difficult timing accurately because of the way ***** program pops in and out of stories ***** commercials—***** the ***** programming ***** commercials. That also works out t o ab***** a 3:1 r*****tio.

There didn't seem to be any particular difference in the quality of the s*****ries assigned to either ***** of anchor. For the ***** part, they equally handled all the top stories, ***** lead-ins to things like the "shoot *****s," which ***** panel of experts on ***** and basketb***** and the ***** Cup. The ***** on baseball discussed ***** pitchers who would be ***** games to ***** played that day (Friday) and ***** com*****tary had to do ***** the fact that
