Peace and Blessings Family,

I'm sitting here watching the nba playoffs ... listening to the announcers .. wondering ... are they former players?

They talk like they could or have played better than the men on the court ... :thinking:

Is that usually the case ... national sports announcers are all former national players?

How do they get in if they never played?

Thanks in advance.

:heart:

well sis some are former players and some went to school for this they learn the inside and out
of players and teams to call a game or predict what could be or should be of a game and to think
some of these announcers been calling the game for over 25 or 30 years

Okay ... yes ... i suppose that makes sense ... broadcasting ... public speaking ... problee takes a lot.

Some training ... even if one did play the game ... i reckon ... :)

Okay ... Thank You! :grouphug:

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
