An excellent sports broadcaster differentiates themselves by doing more than just call play-by-play action as it appears in front of them. Instead, they add an irremovable element to the game, delivering well-researched statistics and insight at the right moments as it occurs. While it does involve a level of intrinsic ability, the job also requires an adept skill in processing and connecting information in a timely manner. BBC Radio Newcastle’s Nick Barnes is well aware of this. Before every match, Barnes meticulously organizes the details of the forthcoming game with graphs, player bios, numbers and positions in his notebook. Enjoy a look at the broadcaster’s work in the pictures above.
