Sports Broadcasting Jobs

From: Marc Zumoff

I have employment leads on everything from Baseball play-by-play positions at various levels to Production Assistant openings at a leading sports production company.  Please email me at marczumoff@comcast.net if you’re interested.


SPORTSTVJOBS.COM

Brian Clapp used to hire sportscasters.  Now, he’s helping them to get hired.

Born in Boston, Clapp is based in Seattle, where he was the former news director of the city’s Fox affiliate.  His aptly named website, www.sportstvjobs.com, is a treasure for those who aspire to cover the events they love watching as fans.  Clapp says the site is designed to “help 15 to 25 year olds (and older) to see what it’s like to work in TV (sports) or for anyone who’s trying to make a career of it.”

There’s career advice, resources, videos, blog links and yes, actual employment opportunities.  And the ads aren’t just for those who want to be on camera.  A slew of behind-the-scenes options are also available.

While it still pays to network and personally develop contacts in the industry, www.sportstvjobs.com is a more than worthwhile option for those who want to explore, in depth, what it takes to get a job in TV sports.

Welcome to an exclusive (and fortunate) club

I know I speak on behalf of my fellow NBA broadcasters by welcoming John Michael to our exclusive (and fortunate) club. Michael is now the new radio play-by-play voice of the Cleveland Cavaliers. He takes the place of the legendary Joe Tait, who’d been broadcasting Cavaliers games since the days of full beards and short shorts. 

I always say there are more United States Senators than NBA broadcasters, so this is a wonderful opportunity for Michael, who brings an interesting and diverse background to the microphone. 

Our best wishes to him!
