16 traits that predict sportscasting success

It is said that sports broadcasting employers need to listen to someone for just 30 seconds to decide if they like that person’s work. Similarly, I can tell within a few minutes of conversation if the person to whom I am speaking is cut out for a career in sports broadcasting.


Here are 16 traits that foretell sportscasting success:

  1. Speaking with confidence
  2. Maturity
  3. Boldness
  4. Inquisitiveness
  5. Likability
  6. Motivation
  7. Knowledge of the industry
  8. Relationship building
  9. Decisiveness
  10. Determination
  11. Proactiveness
  12. Responsibility
  13. Problem solving ability
  14. Refusal to make excuses
  15. Never blame others
  16. Know a plan from a dream

A sportscaster with most of these 16 traits is likely to enjoy a long and fulfilling career.
