A sports broadcast is a verbal or physical depiction of an event occurring in a current situation. It can be viewed and heard by thousands of spectators at once. The term 토토 has sometimes been used to describe a television broadcast. The term has been around since the early 20th century but the actual term originated during the time of television and the evolution from a single camera to multiple camera viewing.
English commentators who comment on a sporting event. In sports broadcasting, and sports commentator (also called play-by-play commentator, sports anchor, or sportscaster) gives a live commentary of an on-air event, generally during a live telecast, in either the historical present or the future tense. He may commentate on the game, he may provide statistics on the teams, or he may simply call the score. In most cases, he presents the play-by-play, but does occasionally comment on certain aspects of the game, such as a questionable call on the field.
In the United States, there are two major organizations that produce and syndicate sports broadcasts. The National Football League (NFL) and the National Basketball League (NBA) both have their own organizations of commentators. Occasionally, a sports broadcast will also include highlights of the relevant matches, but the commentator is not permitted to comment on the game as such. Broadcasters who commentate on games for the networks providing the games are often called sportscasters, and not analysts.
The shared-service model of sports broadcast has some advantages. First, it allows for rapid development of reports based on real events. Second, it permits teams and venues to make changes in the plan without having to wait for the play-by-play to be published over the airwaves. Finally, it allows for quick updates to the subscriber’s feed so that the necessary text can be added or changed as quickly as possible. Sports broadcasts using the remote workflow model may be shorter than those using the traditional TV newsroom models, but they can also be more thorough in reporting the facts.
Another option for sports broadcast is the broadcast for promotion of special events, such as golf tournaments and car racing. In these broadcasts, the commentator is generally from the same network that produces the event – in other words, the commentator is affiliated with the same company that produces the product being promoted. It should be noted that unlike the commentator who works for a network, promoters often have little control over the quality of the broadcast, as they are not always providing the product for sale. (As an example, NASCAR races are broadcast by NBC Sports and are promoted by the NASCAR organization.) The benefit of this arrangement is that affiliates can promote a product for which they are not responsible without violating the affiliate’s agreement with the parent company.
Many companies are seeking to use a hybrid model of sports broadcasting. Some companies offer a play-by-play caster (or host) and a studio host or sideline reporter. Other companies offer a combination of the two. This hybrid model gives the host a solid understanding of the game and is useful in breaking down critical points or offering expert opinion on specific topics. However, it does require that the commentator and the play-by-play narrator are knowledgeable about the same topics (or similar topics).
