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 ESPN broadcast team are, ***** course, intelligent, well-spoken, and attractive.

A lady by the name of Dana Jacobson was one of the primary anchors doing two ***** 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 sm*****ll amount of commentary related to what ever interview *****y did. ***** is, besides the gender mix, also an ethnic mix that is actually more diverse for women than men.

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

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

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