A sports broadcaster, or sportscaster, is a professional who reports on athletic events via webcast, radio or television. Within the field, the exact type of broadcasting can vary. Sportscasters who specialize in providing running commentary can be one of two types, and the majority of modern sporting events will feature them both. The first type is the play-by-play announcers who supply the continuing narrative that runs as a common thread throughout the event. The second type is the color commentators who provide background information about the event’s participants, rules and history.expect.
