Sports Announcer Skills & Competencies

Sports announcers in major media markets like New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago are so polished they make the job look easy. It takes a lot of practice as well as the following qualities and abilities to be a successful announcer:

  • Excellent speaking voice: Sports announcers must have a voice people want to listen to. They should be in command of it, speaking clearly and confidently.
  • Interpersonal skills: They must interact effectively with other on-air talents as well as, in some cases, in-studio guests and people who call their show.
  • Research: In smaller markets, they conduct their own research to generate statistics and trivia about the home team and their opponents.
  • Writing: They may also write material for the broadcast or for use in other media.
  • Technical savvy: They must be able to use the various pieces of technological equipment their particular job utilizes.

Sports Announcer Duties & Responsibilities

This job generally requires the following abilities and qualities:

  • Knowledge of the sport, the teams that are playing, and their players.
  • The ability to quickly summarize what’s happening during the game.
  • The ability to offer commentary on the game.
  • The ability to banter with your on-air colleagues.

Sports announcers must combine all of those attributes so the things they say engage the audience and come across as friendly and intelligent. They should let their personalities shine through but not to the extent that they interfere with viewer and listener enjoyment of the game.
