Sports Reporting
  • What’s the most important thing about a sporting event?
  • Like news reporting, with sports you must find the “facts” (try the 5 W’s) before creating your script.
  • What are the facts in a sporting event?
  • Who won, what was the score
  • Individual stats from player(s)
  • Updated team records/standings
  • Special milestones/dramatic way to win

Sports Reporting
  • SPORTS SCRIPT
  • Like the “News” script we learned, 4 sentences andit shouldn’t be more than 30-seconds per story.
  • INTRO/OUTRO:
    • Intro: “I’m ____ and this a Point Sports Update”
    • Outro: “This has been a Point Sports Update, I’m ____”
  • In sports, you must intro each story (other than the first story, we can use the transitions for this)
    • “Beginning in the NFL” - “moving to Major League Baseball” - “in local high school football”

Sports Reporting
  • CHOOSING ONLY 3 STORIES, how to determine which games go in your report
  • Sports Popularity (by TV Ratings)
  • NFL
  • NCAA Football
  • MLB
  • NBA
  • NCAA Basketball
  • NHL
  • We only use this chart when we aren’t sure of what games to choose from and also for proper ordering of your stories.

Sports Reporting
  • Local teams are ALWAYS used before personal favorites.
  • LOCAL TEAMS:
  • NFL: Colts/Bears
  • NCAA: IU, Purdue, Notre Dame (Ball State, Butler, Valpo, IPFW, IUPUI)
  • NBA: Pacers
  • MLB: Cubs, White Sox, Reds
  • High School, Wizards, Mad Ants
  • Like “News”, some national stories will come before LOCAL ones:
  • Championships, playoffs, rare feats, tragedies, etc.

Sports Reporting
  • WRITING YOUR STORIES
  • Writing/Reading should be casual and conversational…as if you were informing one person of the game.
  • There is no Inverted Pyramid, but there is a diagram you must follow:
  • 1st segment: Knock out the who, what, when, where…two teams, one score, when and where the game took place
  • 2nd segment: Stats for the winning team (any milestones or dramatic plays)
  • 3rd segment: Stats for the losing team (anything extra for that team)
  • 4th segment: Teams new records/standings and/or when both teams are scheduled to play again

Sports Reporting
  • WRITING YOUR STORIES (continued)
  • Rarely will “quotes” be used. And if you do use them, make sure you make it ‘conversational’
  • QUOTE: “This loss really hurts us” – Colts coach Tony Dungy
  • GOOD: “Tony Dungy said that this loss really hurts the Colts”
  • BAD: “This loss really hurts us, said Tony Dungy”
  • You have to start by giving the full name of the team/player, on subsequent mentioning just give team name/last name
  • (‘Peyton Manning’ becomes just ‘Manning’ – ‘Indianapolis Colts’ becomes just ‘Colts’)

LET’S TRY IT OUT!!!
