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 of the people who are part of the ***** broadcast team are, ***** course, intelligent, well-spoken, ***** 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 named Mike Greenberg and another ***** the name of Dave Revasine. There were other females involved in the broadcasting, mostly as interviewers who also did a small amount of commentary related to what ever interview they did. There is, besides the gender mix, also an ethnic mix that is actually more diverse for women than men. ***** are Caucasian, African-American ***** Hispanic peoples represented by the ***** and Caucasian and African-American by the men.

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

T***** single most prevalent programming is commercials. Of ********** ***** or three hours ***** forty-five minutes, 64-68 minutes—it is difficult timing accurately because of the way ***** program pops in and out of ***** and commercials—of the total programming is commercials.

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