As a sports writer or editor who works in the broadcast industry, you already know that there are plenty of sports broadcast channels out there, but how will you be able to distinguish which ones are the good ones and which ones are not? What do you look for to determine if the person or company that is offering you their sports broadcasting services is on the up? You have to start by looking at their sports coverage and the sports analysis. If you see that they have an extensive sports coverage, then you can be sure that they have something worth watching and reading. However, if you are seeing a lot of play by play and general sports reporting but no sports analysis and broadcasting, then you should probably consider looking elsewhere.
The next thing that you want to look at when evaluating sports broadcasting and sports analysis companies is how they treat you as a professional. Are they willing to take the time to answer your questions, make you feel comfortable, and provide you with plenty of resource links? If the answer to any of those questions is no, then you might want to keep looking. Also, do they guarantee you broadcast time or do you have to prove your credentials? It is best to find a sports broadcasting or sports analysis firm that has a reputation for treating its clients well, providing them with outstanding sports broadcast and sports analysis, and offering them plenty of broadcast time.
Finally, keep in mind what type of sports broadcasting or sports analysis service do they have. For example, is it limited to college sports only, or do you get access to game tapes, highlights, schedules, and other sports-oriented information? Some firms only offer certain sports coverage, such as football or baseball, while others are open to covering other sports like soccer and NASCAR racing. And, of course, the more professional the service, the more coverage you will get. The more coverage, the more money you will be making, so make sure that you get the full range of services that you need from the person or company that is calling you.
