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 of the people who are part ***** the ***** broadcast team are, of course, intelligent, well-spoken, ***** attractive.

***** 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 by the name of Dave Revasine. There were other females involved in the broadcasting, mostly as interviewers who also did a small amount of ***** related to what ever interview they did.

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

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

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