SportsCenter Analysis

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

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

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

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

There ***** seem to be any particular difference in the quality of the stories assigned to either gender ***** anchor. For the ***** part, *****y equally handled all the top stories, ***** lead-ins to things like the "shoot *****s," which were panel of experts on baseb***** and basketball and the Stanley Cup. The ***** on baseball discussed the pitchers who would be ***** games ***** be played that day (Friday) and ***** ***** had to do with the fact that
