SportsCenter Analysis

SportsCenter is a production of ESPN on cable television. 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, and attractive.

A lady by the name ***** Dana Jacobson was one of the primary anchors doing two ***** the three shows. She worked with one man *****d Mike Greenberg ***** another by 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 *****y did. There is, besides the gender mix, also an ethnic mix that is actually more diverse for women than men. ***** are Caucasian, African-American and Hispanic peoples represented by the ***** and Caucasian ***** ***** by the *****. The ***** ratio is approximately 3:1 males ***** females. Overall, a great deal of the programming for all ***** broadcasts focused around basketb***** with baseball and hockey about even in second spot. ***** is interesting that hockey didn't receive more air time. The focus on basketball ***** underst*****able as the leagues ***** in their play-*****fs for who will be in the championship game but right now, the Stanley Cup series is ***** progress and that ***** is the ***** of pr*****essional hockey. For this championship series to receive a smaller proportion of the air time ***** share about the same place as a sport that is just starting its se*****on seems odd. The conclusion one could draw from this is that hockey is not as popular, or perhaps, as well-understood a sport, as ***** and baseball.

Other individual *****s or sp*****t-related issues, covered on the three shows I reviewed were, auto racing and the *****ndy 500, horse racing and the third Triple Crown race coming up, a brief hit on lacrosse, tennis and the French Open, and a human interest feature about a ********** player for the Athletics who pretty thoroughly ripped ***** his career and life in general ***** drink and drugs. The story went ***** to tell ***** some kind of physical disability that hit him ***** he is now fighting back *****.

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

There didn't seem to be any particular difference in ***** quality of the s*****ries assigned to either gender of anchor. For the ***** part, *****y equally handled all the top stories, doing 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 ***** be played that day (Friday) and that commentary had to do with the fact *****
